CHRISTOPHERS FAMILY. 



Contributed by John R. Totten, 

Member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, the New England 
Historic-Genealogical Society, and the New London County Historical Society. 



Owing to the prominence of this family in the early colonial days 
of Connecticut, and to the intermingling of the Christophers blood 
with the best blood of New London, Connecticut, and of Eastern 
Long Island, New York, and especially due to the fact that at pre- 
sent (in so far as I am informed) the male line is practically extinct, 
— I have deemed it desirable to perpetuate in printed record such in- 
formation as I have collected relative to the origin of this family in 
America ; and to show the lines of descent of those bearing the Chris- 
tophers surname, and (on account of the almost complete extinction 
of the male line) to show a more extensive than usual tracing of the 
Christophers strain of blood down the female lines of descent. 

Two brothers of the name of Christophers, both mariners, and 
both engaged in the shipping exchange trade with Barbadoes, settled 
in New London, Conn., about 1665. Their names were respectively 
Jeffrey and Christopher Christophers. Jeffrey, the elder, was aged 
fifty-five in 1676, and was therefore born about 1621. Christopher 
died July 23, 1687, aged fifty-six, and hence was born about 1631. 
That they were brothers is conclusively established by documents on 
record in New London, wherein this relationship is specifically 
expressed. 

These brothers are supposed to have arrived in New London, 
either direct from England, or indirectly by way of Barbadoes. 
Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, states that Christopher 
Christophers brought his family to this country directly from Bar- 
badoes. On what authority he made this statement, I do not know, 
but it may well be so, as English colonists in those days, many of 
them, made Barbadoes their port of destination. But as Christopher 1 
Christophers' son Richard 2 Christophers was born in Cherston- 
Ferrers, on Torbay, near Dartmouth, Devonshire, England, on July 
13, 1662, and also in view of the fact that ChristopheriChristophers 
appeared in New London in 1665, — it is evident that the stay of the 
brothers Jeffrey and Christopher in Barbadoes was only of short 
duration. 

The parentage of these two brothers is not known, nor is the 
place of their residence in England known; but as Christopher 1 
Christophers had a son born in Cherston-Ferrers, Devonshire, Eng- 
land, that locality has been regarded as possibly their place of resi- 
dence prior to emigration, although no definite information that such 
is the case, has to my knowledge up to the present time, been dis- 
covered. 



The family, therefore, starts in this country with these two 
brothers of the first generation with no known connection with their 
probable mother country, England, viz. : — 
-|-i. Jeffrey 1 Christophers. 
-\-2. Christopher 1 Christophers. 

Jeffrey 1 Christophers and His Descendants 

i. Jeffrey 1 Christophers (parentage unknown), b. , about 

about 1621 (he was 55 years old in 1676), in (Devonshire, 

England, possibly) ; he resided in , Devonshire, England, 

possibly, in Barbadoes, possibly, in New London, Conn., as 
early as 1665, and in Southold, Long Island, N. Y., as early as 
July 8, 1700; he was a mariner engaged in the exchange ship- 
ping trade from New London to the Island of Barbadoes ; he 
died at Southold, Long Island, N. Y. (possibly), as that was 

his last known place of residence, , subsequent to July 8, 

1700, on which date he made and signed a deed in Southold 
which deed is quoted below ; he was probably buried in South- 
old, although we have no record of such burial. He married 

? probably previous to 1665, the year of his appearance in 

New London, in , England, probably, to ? (whose 

baptismal name and maiden surname are unknown to us ; there 
is no reference to her either in the New London or Southold 

records), born , at ; d. , at . Her parentage 

is not known. 

Children: 3 that are known of and possibly 4 (Christophers), 1 
son and 2 (or 3) daughters, viz.: — 

+3 i. Jeffrey, 2 b. ; d. May 17, 1690; m. Jane ? 

+4 ii. Joanna, 2 b. ; d. ; m. John Mayhew. 

-j-5 iii. Margaret, 2 b. ; d. June l," 1728; m. (1) Abra- 
ham Corey; m. (2) John Parker. 

+6 iv. (?) a daughter, 2 b. ; d. ; m. (according to 

Caulkins' History of New London, p. 316, and also 
Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of New England, 
Vol. I, p. 383) John Packer (or Parker). I think 
both Caulkins and Savage are in error in regard to 
the existence of this daughter for reasons which I 
will subsequently set forth in full. 

Jeffrey 1 Christophers is supposed to have arrived in New Lon- 
don at about the same time as his brother Christopher 1 Christophers, 
1665 ! but his name does not appear on the records of that town at 
so early a date. He was a mariner and sailed from New London as 
master of his own ship, and was engaged in trade with Barbadoes. 
The commercial relations between New London and Barbadoes 
were more intimate than that of New London with any other dis- 
tant port. Two voyages were made by a vessel yearly. Horses, 
cattle, beef, pork and sometimes pipe-staves were exchanged for 
sugar and molasses ; and at a later period for rum. An interchange 
of inhabitants between the two places occasionally took place. 



Agencies from New London were established on the island and sev- 
eral persons emigrating from Barbadoes became permanent residents 
of New London. The Barbadoes trade was the most lucrative busi- 
ness of the period. Merchants of Hartford, Middletown and 
Wethersfield, Conn., made shipments from New London. Captains 
of vessels hailing from other towns often took their cargoes on at 
New London. The following receipt shows the comparative value 
of two of the principal articles of exchange, viz. : — 

"Barbadoes: — I, underwrit, do hereby acknowledge to have re- 
ceived of Mr. Jeffrey Christophers, one bl., of pork pr. account of 
Mr. Benjamin Brewster, the which I have sold for 300 lbs. of sugar, 
(sgd) Elisha Sanford, August 13th, 1671." 

"True copy of the receipt which was sent to Barbadoes by Mr. 
Giles Hamlin in the ship John and James, October 29th, 1671. 

(sgd) Charles Hill, 

Recorder." 

Jeffrey 1 Christophers remained some years an inhabitant of 
New London ; but later in life he removed to Southold, N. Y. The 
date of his removal is not known, but it was undoubtedly in his 
declining years after retirement from the sea; and he probably 
went there to pass his remaining years with his daughter Mar- 
garet 2 Christophers who had previously married Abraham Corey 
and was living in Southold. He was an inhabitant of Southold 
in July, 1700, as is shown by the following deed copied from the 
published records of that town, viz.: — "p. 50 [abstract] :, 

To all Christian people: — Know ye that Jeffrey Christophers, 
late of New London, in ye Colony of Connecticut, Mariner, now 
of Southold, Province of New York, for valuable consideration 
doe by these presents give, grant, bargaine and sell unto my son- 
in-law and daughter Margaret Corye, wife of Abraham Corye of 
Southold, that percell of land or ground on which my house in 
New London now stands, containing also the yards and garden 
plot joyning to ye said house as now they are impaled or inclosed 
(excepting only a sufficient landing place, and way or passage 
which is to be left of common use, to give to and from ye Grist 
Mill by land and water) : this said way being the bounds' of this 
ground towards the West — ye land of John Winthrope, Esq. 
without ye garden plott to be ye bounds Eastward: The Street 
between Mr. Winthrope's orchard and ye said grounds the bounds 
Northward: and ye Mill Cove or Creek the bounds to ye South- 
ward.

Jeffrey 2 Christophers, only son of Jeffrey 1 Christophers, died 
May 17, 1690, without issue; and therefore the perpetuation of 
the Christophers name, even at this early period of the family's 
history, devolved upon the male descendants of Christopher 1 
Christophers.

was a mariner, and d. May 17, 1690, of smallpox (see old 
book of Records, New London, Conn., page 53) at New Lon-

known), b. , at ; d. June 7, 1690, about ("3 weeks, 

subsequent to the death of her husband"), at New London, 
Conn. 

Children: (Christophers). None that are known of. 

Jeffery 2 Christophers was the only son of his father, and, 
therefore, dying without issue, the Christophers name became ex- 
tinct with his death among the descendants of his father.

John Mayhew, Senior, appears first in New London in the list 
of inhabitants in 1676; he was a mariner by occupation, — being 
one of that class of individuals who made their principal home 
on the deep and their temporary abiding place in New London. 
He was one of the assistants of Thomas Dymond, master of the 
barque Providence, when on Nov. 28, 1679, that vessel was 
wrecked and lost off Fisher's Island Point. Dymond and his 
assistants, John Mayhew, and Ezekiel Turner, barely escaping 
with their lives.

5. Margaret 2 Christophers (Jeffery 1 ), born , at ; 

died June 19, 1728, at Southold, N. Y., and was probably 
buried there but no gravestone marks her grave; married (1) 

(probably between 1677 and 1680 — see probable date of 

birth of her children), at , to Abraham 2 Corey, born 

? (before his father John 1 Corey appeared on Long 

Island, N. Y., on March 7, 1644; his father John 1 Corey 
signed a deed at Southold, N. Y., Oct. 11, 1660, in which he 
John 1 Corey quit claims for himself, wife Ann and son John 2 
Corey all their respective interests in certain property. It 
would seem therefore that his eldest son John 2 Corey was of 
age at that date, but that Abraham 2 Corey, a younger son was 
not of age Oct. 11, 1660. We conclude therefore that he was 
born subsequent to Oct. 11, 1639), at ; he lived at South- 
old, N. Y., and was a cooper; he died Sept. II, 1702 (will 
dated May 19, 1702; proved Oct. 14, 1702), at Southold, 
N. Y., and was buried there Sept. 11, 1702, no gravestone. 
He was a son of John 1 Corey, a weaver by trade, who settled 
in Southold, N. Y., after the year 1644 (see Southold Town 

Records, Vol. I, page 171) and his wife Ann ? (whose 

maiden surname is not known). 

Children: 5 (Corey), 2 sons and 3 daughters, all probably 
born at Southold, N. Y. The order of their birth as given is 
not vouched for: — 

— {— 13 i. Abraham, 3 b. , about 1680; (he was called 

eldest son in his father's will and was not 25 
years of age at date of that will. May 19, 1702); 
m. Mary Paine. 

-I-14 ii. Elizabeth, 3 b. , 1681 ; d. April 11, 1751, "in 



her 71st year;" m. (1) Samuel Hutchinson; m. 
(2) John Budd, as his 2nd wife. 

+ 15 iii. John 3 , b. about January — , 1686; d. July 13, 
1754; m. Dorothy Hobart. He is called 2nd son 
in his father's will dated May 19, 1702, and was 
not 25 years old on that date. 

-j-16 iv. Mary, 3 b. ; d. ; she still retained her 

maiden surname Corey in 1698; and at the date 
of her father's will, May 19, 1702; she had been 
twice married, and on that date was the wife of 

William Bradley; m. (1) ? m. (2) William 

Bradley. 

-{-17 v. Dorothy, 3 b. ; d. ; she was not married 

up to May 19, 1702. 

John 1 Corey of Southampton and Southold, N. Y. (the father 
of Abraham 2 Corey), is first mentioned at Southampton on March 
7, 1644, as Whale Commissioner for his district. He received a 
grant of land the following day. On Oct. 8, 1649, ne wa s a resi- 
dent of Southold; he and his wife Ann being witnesses to a deed 
there on that date. In 1659 he refused to take the oath of allegi- 
ance to New Haven; but subsequently in 1660 did take that oath. 
He, "Goodman" Corey was made a freeman of Connecticut in 
1662. 

From Moore's Indexes of Southold, N. Y '., p. 13, we extract 
the following abstract of the chronological record of John 1 Corey 
as taken from the records of that town: — 

1653: Perhaps in Europe (see 5 State Trials, p. 359). 

1659: Refused to take oath of allegiance to New Haven Colony. 

1659: March 9th, received deed from John Budd for home lot 

and land at Hashamomach, but was called a Quaker and 

objected to by his neighbors. 
1660: Sued by John Conkling and John Budd, Jr., for letting 

hogs run at large. 
1660: Took oath of allegiance to New Haven. 
1660: Oct. 11. Gave deed to John Conkling for John Salmon, of 

land in Hashamomach. 
1662: "Goodman" Corey admitted a freeman of Connecticut. 
1664: Deed from G. and S. Jones for dwelling house and four 

acres. 
1655: Deed from Barnabas Wines for several parcels to him as 

John Corey, Senior. 
1675 : Rated on 1 ox, 2 horses, etc., £44. 
1680: Release from son Abraham Corey of debts. 
1680: Deeds to his son Isaac 2 Corey all of his lands, reserving life 

estate. 

In the June 28, 1680, release of Abraham 2 Corey to his father 
John 1 Corey, Abraham 2 Corey signs over to his father John 1 Corey 
all his interest in the estate of his father's, John 1 Corey's estate. 



This was probably done to clear the way for John 1 Corey to deed 
all of his lands to his son Isaac 2 Corey in consideration of a life 
estate in same, and probably also maintenance during the re- 
mainder of his life; the deed to his son Isaac- Corey was dated 
July 6, 1680. 

From Moore's Indexes of Southold, N. Y '., we obtain the fol- 
lowing abstract of the chronological record of Abraham 2 Corey as 

taken from the records of that town : — 

1675 : Rated on 4 acres, 7 cattle, 2 horses, etc., etc., £76. 

1678: United in deed to E. Petty in exchange of common lands. 

1680: Release of his father John 1 Corey from debts. 

1681 : Witness to deed of John Tuthill to Jasper Griffing. 

1682: Witness to will of W. Hallock. 

1685: Deed to John Tuthill, land in Oyster Ponds. 

1686: 4 males and 3 females in his family. 

1697: May 24. Abraham 2 Corey and Margaret Corey deed to 
Peter Hallock land in Southold; deed recorded June 21, 
1708, and in this deed Abraham 2 Corey is styled a cooper. 

From Pelletreau's Early Long Island Wills, p. 74, we have a 
copy of the will of John Sammis, of Huntington, L. I., N. Y., 
dated Nov. 28, 1693. In this will the testator speaks of Abraham 2 
Corey and Isaac 2 Corey as "my brothers-in-law." This is ac- 
counted for by the fact that Abigail 2 Corey, daughter of John 1 
Corey married John Sammis of Huntington. 

On pp. 256-60 of same book of wills, we find the full text of 
the will of Abraham 2 Corey of Southold, N. Y. Will was dated 
May 19, 1702, and was proved Oct. 14, 1702. Witnesses: David 
Young, Joshua Young, Stephen Bailey. Executors : wife Mar- 
garet and sons Abraham and John. In this will he mentions his 
wife Margaret; his eldest son Abraham; his 2nd son John; his 
daughter Mary "now the wife of William Bradlev, besides what 

1 lent her at her first marriage;" his daughter Elizabeth, "now ye 
wife of Samuel Hutchinson ;" his nephew [context shows that he 
means niece] Patience Mayhew (see record No. 12 of this article, 
daughter of Joanna 2 Christophers by her husband John Mayhew), 
"if she remain with my executors until she comes of age;" he also 
makes it clear that neither his son Abraham 3 nor John 3 were 25 
years old at date of the will May 19, 1702; mentions also his 
daughter Dorothy 3 Corey who was not married at date of will ; 
mentions also grandson Elijah Hutchinson. 

In Vol. II, pp. 1 18-19, 0I Southold Town Records, John 1 
Corey, Senior, deeds to his son Abraham 2 Corey all his interest in 
house and home-lot that he John 1 Corey bought August 26, 1665, 
from Barnabas and Mary Winds of Southold; date of deed Sept. 
6, 1680, and the transfer was recorded August 13, 1705, three 
years subsequent to Abraham 2 Corey's death. 

Southold Indexes, p. 13, states that John 1 Corey probably 
married Margaret ? who was living in 1686 with 1 male and 

2 females in her family. The deeds on record quoted above cer- 



8 

tainly show that John 1 Corey had a wife Ann on Oct. 8, 1649. 
This wife Ann may have died subsequent to that date and John 1 
Corey may have married a second wife named Margaret. But I 
do not think he did. I think that the Margaret Corey who in 
1686 was living in Southold with 1 male and 2 females in her 
family was Margaret (Christophers) Corey, wife of Abraham 2 
Corey. We have direct evidence that John 1 Corey had a wife 
Ann; but no evidence that he had a wife Margaret; whereas we 
have direct evidence that Abraham 2 Corey did marry Margaret 2 
Christophers. 

Margaret 2 (Christophers) Corey remained a widow as late as 
Sept. 14, 1705, as on that date she is deeded to under name of Mar- 
garet Corey and the deed was recorded Oct. 8, 1705. 

Margaret 2 (Christophers) Corey, widow of Abraham 2 Corey, 

married (2) (subsequent to Sept. 14, 1705), at Southold, 

N. Y., probably, to John Parker (or Packer), as his second wife 
(his first wife was Abigail (Tuthill) Conklin, widow of Joseph 
Conklin, and she died June 6, 1705, and was buried at Southold, N. 

Y., June 8, 1705), born , 1657, about (see age at and date of 

death), at ? he lived successively at Southampton, Southold 

and Riverhead, Long Island, N. Y. He was styled a doctor and 
was also a fuller, owning a fulling mill at Riverhead; he died at 
Mattituck, Long Island, N. Y., Feb. 9 (or 7) 1727, aged 70 (see 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. XXXII, 
pp. 135-6), and was buried in the Mattituck Cemetery about 15 
rods southwest from church, gravestone. His parentage has not 
been determined. 

Children: ? (Parker). None that are known of. 

John Parker, married (1) ? (after Nov. 23, 1698, the 

date of death of her first husband) to Abigail (Tuthill) Conklin 
(widow of Joseph Conklin*), born Oct. 17, 1670, at Southold, 
N. Y. ; died June 6, 1705, "being at the time of her death wife of 
John Parker," at Southold, N. Y., and was buried there June 8, 
1705. She was a daughter of John and Deliverance (King) Tut- 
hill, of Southold, N. Y. 

Children: 2 (Parker) daughters. Not in Christophers line. 
+ 17A. Abigail, b. Feb. 28, 1703; d. April 4, 1779; m. Aug. (or May) 

29, 1723, to Joseph Wickham. 
+ 17B. Mary, b. ; d. ; m. William Albertson. 

Southold Town Records, Vol. II, p. 92, gives undoubted au- 
thority for the existence of John Parker's two daughters as given 
above; and from the deed which is quoted below it would seem 

♦Joseph Conklin was born , probably as early as 1670; died Nov. 23, 

1608, letters of administration on his estate were issued Dec. 16, 1698, to his 
widow Abigail and her father John Tuthill, Senior (see Pelletreau's Long 
Island Wills, p. 161) ; married Nov. — , 1090, at Southold. N. Y., to Abigail 
Tuthill by whom he had 2 (Conklin) sons, viz.: — 

1. Joseph, b. Aug. 7, 1691. 

2. John, b. Oct. 16, 1694 (see Moore's Indexes of Southold, pp. 70-71). 



that they were his only children. If he had other children they 
must have died previous to the date of the deed or else must have 
received their portions before the date of the deed, — as John 
Parker seems in said deed to have in the anticipation of death 
transferred all of his property to these two daughters. He does 
not in this deed, dated Jan. 4, 1726-7, even mention his wife Mar- 
garet, who was then living; the omission of all reference to her 
being due probably to some ante-nuptial agreement between John 
Parker and his wife Margaret 2 (Christophers) Corey. Moreover 
in said deed he mentions no other children. 

Moore's Indexes of Southold, N. Y., p. 142, gives the follow- 
ing as a list of John Parker's children, viz. : — 

"1. (perhaps) John, called "Parr," who m. Mary Corwin , 

1728 [Dec. 9, 1719, according to 'Salmon Record,' New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. 49, p 66]. 

2. Nathaniel, b. ; d. . 

3. Child (possibly above Nathaniel), b. ; d. Oct. 17, 1723, 

drowned. 

4. (probably) Abigail, b. ; d. ; who m. Joseph Wick- 
ham." 

The "Salmon Record of Deaths and Marriages in Southold," 
of which a careful copy of the original was published in the New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Record (Vols. 47, 48 and 
49), seems carefully to discriminate between the names Parr and 
Parker and in it the marriage of John Parr is recorded as taking 
place Dec. 9, 1719, to Mary Corwin; thus differing to Moore's 
record as given above. Moore himself by his phraseology seems 
to be wholly in doubt as to what children John Parker had. The 
only one mentioned by him that seems to be correct is Abigail, who 
married Joseph Wickham and about her even he was in doubt as 
shown by his use of the word probably. All of which leads me to 
the assumption that no credence can be placed upon Moore's list 
of John Parker's children; and to the belief that John Parker had 
but two children, the daughters mentioned above, Abigail and 
Mary. The following is the deed referred to. viz. : — 

From Vol. II. pages 91-92, of Southold Town Records. 

"To all Christian People to whom these presents shall come, 
Greeting: Know ye that I, John Parker, of Southampton, doc- 
tor, in consideration of natural love and affection that I have and 
do bare unto my daughter Abigail, the wife of Joseph Wickham, 
Jr., do freely give, grant and confirm unto the said Joseph Wick- 
ham, Junior during his natural life only, and after his decease to 
my said daughter Abigail and to the heirs of her body forever 
and for want of such heirs to my daughter Mary, wife of Will- 
iam Albertson, and to the heirs of her body forever all my lands 
and meadows lying on the north side of the Great River, called 
Peconnock River, and my meadow lying on the south side of 
Peconnock River which I purchased of Thomas Booth, with all 



my land lying on the north side of the Rhoade, a highway run- 
ning from ye east, and of common meadow Easterly to the muddy 
creek or first brook of water, and also one half of the 50 right in 
the Cedar Swamp lying between Great River and Little River, and 
liberty to pass and repass to and from said Cedar Swamp and 
meadows from time to time as he and they shall have occasion. In 
witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 4th day 
of January 1726-7. 

(sgd) John Parker (Seal) 
Witnesses : — 

Abraham Cooper, Thomas Reed, William Jennings. 

Acknowledged before me nth January 1726-7. Entered 10th 
January 1758 per Robert Hempstead, Town Clerk." 

The following is a note on John Parker taken from the printed 
Town Records of Southold: 

"John Parker, styled sometimes Doctor and often called 
'Fuller,' was of the town of Southampton originally; he dwelt 
therein till near the close of his days, when, as he was buried in 
the Wickham plot in the cemetery at Mattituck, he most likely 
died at the home of his daughter Abigail, the wife of Joseph 
Wickham, Corchang" [I doubt this last statement as to the place 
of his death as his wife Margaret was still living and did not die 
until June 19th, 1728. — J. R. T.] "His principal business appears 
to have been that of a fuller of cloth. In 1690 Southampton 
Town granted him the stream of either Great Noyac or Little 
Noyac to set up a fulling mill. In 1695 Southampton voted him 
the stream at Riverhead and all the land between the two rivers ; 
he to build a fulling mill. In 1696 he sold his stream at Noyac 
for £70. January, 1726-7, the record speaks of his dwelling house 
at Riverhead, the two rivers, his cedar swamp, etc. He had at 
one time a grant of stream at the head of Sag Pond. His busi- 
ness yielded a large profit ; the establishment at Riverhead was a 
great success. From indirect facts from the records it appears 
that he removed from Southampton to Riverhead with his family; 
perhaps built the old mansion now the residence of John C. 
Sweezy and before him for a great many years occupied by Joseph 
Albertson. Dr. Parker had two children, — Abigail, who married 
Joseph Wickham and Mary, who married William Albertson: to 
them went all his lands, mills and money. To Abagail he gave his 
lands north of Peconic River, besides other lands. He owned the 
"Jagger Farms" in the village of Riverhead ; the old Court House 
built in 1727 stood, and still stands upon it; the Jagger Farms 
went from the bay to the sound. To Mary and the Albertsons 
he left the stream of water and mills at Riverhead and also large 
tracts of land. The monument erected to the memory of Dr. 
Parker may be found in the Mattituck Cemetery about 15 rods 
south westerly from the Church, a modest little brownstone about 
two feet high with his name, age and date of death inscribed upon 
it. (Signed) J. Wickham Case."

6. (?) (a daughter) 2 Christophers (Jeffery 1 ). 

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of Nezv England, Vol I, p. 
383, referring to Jeffery 1 Christophers, states : — 

"He removed in old age with two daughters, living 1700, in 
Southold, L. I., Margaret married Abraham Corey; Joanna mar- 
ried Dec. 25, 1676, John Mayhew of New London and the other 
daughter married a Packer of Southold." 

Caulkins' History of Nezv London, p. 316, speaking of Jeffery 1 
Christophers, states : — 

"Three daughters are mentioned: Joanna, wife of John May- 
hew ; Margaret, wife of Abraham Corey, of Southold, and the wife 
of a Mr. Parker, or Packer, of the same place. In 1700 Jeffery 1 
Christophers was living at Southold, with one of these daughters.'' 

Savage was published in i860 and probably copied his notes 
on the Christophers family from Caulkins' History of New Lon- 
don which was published in 1852. 

Miss Caulkins, although a very careful and painstaking com- 
piler, made an error in stating that "three daughters are men- 
tioned" — she laboring at the time of writing under the impression 
that the daughter who married Abraham Corey was not the same 
daughter who married "Mr. Parker, or Packer, of the same place." 

The facts are that the daughter who married John Parker was 
Margaret 2 Christophers-Corey, who after the death of Abraham 
Corey on Sept. 11, 1702, married a second time subsequent to 
Sept. 14, 1705, to John Parker of Southold, N. Y., as his second 
wife. 

This disposes of the confusion of authors in assigning to Jef- 
fery 1 Christophers three daughters. He had only two, viz. : 
Joanna 2 and Margaret. 2 

Third Generation. 

7. John 3 Mayhew (Joanna 2 Christophers, Jeffery 1 ), born Dec. 
15, 1677, at New London, Conn.; baptized there Sept. 29, 
1678; he lived at New London and was a shipmaster in the 
West Indies and Newfoundland trade ; died Sept. 26, 1726, at 
New London and was buried there Sept. 27, 1726 (in old 
burying ground, no gravestone) ; married May 26, 1704, at 

New London, to Sarah Latham, born ; baptized Dec. 6, 

1704, at New London; died Nov. 27, 1750, "aged about 74 or 
75," at New London and was buried there Nov. 29, 1750; 



after her husband's death she was the chief midwife in New 
London. She was the daughter of Thomas Latham (born 

; died Dec. 14, 1677; married Oct. 15, 1673; son of Cary 

Latham) and Rebecca Wells (daughter of Hugh Wells of 
Wethersfield, Conn.), of New London, Conn. 

Children: 5 (Mayhew), 2 sons and 3 daughters, all born at 
New London, Conn.

I have been unable to determine whether she ever 
married, or when she died; but from Caulkins' 
History of New London, p. 336, I am inclined 
to think she died single.

John 3 Mayhew was a noted shipmaster in the West Indies and 
Newfoundland trade. He was on the sea expedition against Can- 
ada in 171 1, acting as pilot. In 1712 he was sent to England to 
give his testimony concerning the disastrous shipwrecks on the 
St. Lawrence River, which on Aug. 22, 171 1, frustrated that ex- 
pedition. He died in 1726 leaving several children; but only one 
son, John, who died without issue in 1745. The Mayhew prop- 
erty was inherited by female descendants of the name of Talman, 
Lampheer and Howard. 

Hempstead's Diary, p. 560, states : — 

"Wednesday, November 28, 1750: — .... Mrs. Sarah 
Mayhew, widow of John Mayhew died, aged about 74 or 75 ; 
died last night. She was the only daughter of Thomas Latham 
the first, grand-daughter of Cary Latham, the first; he [i.e. Cary 
Latham] was a contemporary of my [Joshua Hempstead's] 
grandfather, who were both the first settlers of this town in ye 
year 1646; this widow Mayhew had two sons; both died single; 
and her husband had one brother that died single; thus the male 
issue are all gone before her. She hath been a very sober, quiet 
and useful woman, — ye chief mid-wife in the Towne for many 
years past Thursday November 29th: — Mrs. May- 
hew was buried and I was not at it : could not get ready till it was 
too late."

, 1707, according to Caulkins' History of New London, 

p. 336, at New London, Conn. Hempstead's Diary, p. 155, 
however, states: — "Thursday, March 18th, 1724-5: 'I helpt 
Lay out Wait Mayhew about Noon" — which would seem to 
indicate that he died about that date instead of 1707 as stated 
by Miss Caulkins. He did not marry.

and at Greenport, Long Island, N. Y. ; he was a master-

The will of Joshua Youngs of Southold, N. Y., is to be found 
copied in the New York Historical Society Collections of New 
York wills. Volume for 1896, page 88. Will dated June 13, 1755; 
proved July 3, 1755, before William Throop, Surrogate. Wit- 
nesses: Peter Sweetland, Henry Moore and Jonathan Barber. 
The will mentions wife Mary; granddaughter Mary Hazzard, she 
to receive certain legacies when she is 18 [hence it would appear 
that she was not 18 years old at date of will]; daughter Mary 
Youngs to receive use of room as long as she remains a widow 
[hence it would seem that either her 1st or 2nd husband, or per- 



'5 

haps both had died previous to date of will]; daughter Elizabeth 
Vail ; daughter Bethiaah Youngs, she to have a room until she 
marries [she did not marry until 1758]. 

Joshua Youngs married (1) , about 1707, to ? by 

whom he had 1 son John Youngs, born , 1708; died June 17, 

1708; and his first wife died probably that same year. 

From the Youngs Family, by Selah Youngs, Jr. (published 
New York, 1907), on pp. 85-6 we obtain the following extract: — 
"Judge Joshua Youngs' name appears on a stone in the Sterling 
Cemetery (erected to the memory of his son Thomas Youngs, who 
died in 1793) as the son of Zerubbable, son of Col. John Youngs. 
This is the only record to show that there was such a Zerubbable 
Youngs, and from the records of Joshua as given under John, No. 
27, is evidently an error. 

It doubtless happened partly because of the long lapse of time 
(one hundred and eight years from the death of Joshua's father 
to the death of Joshua's son Thomas) and partly because no fam- 
ily records had been preserved ; but mainly because of an entry 
in the manuscript Southold Town Records which they probably 
had seen, and which later Mr. Charles B. Moore in collecting the 
material for his Indexes of 1698 found, and which he says he read as 
"John Youngs, sonn Zofossbel Yongs born the 16th of May 1664." 
[See Southold MSS. Town Records, Vol. I, page 463.] Suppos- 
ing this to mean Zerubbable, he thought it confirmed the record on 
the stone, placed him (Zerubbable) as the son of Col. John, but 
when the town records were published and this entry read, "John 
Yongs sonn to Joseph (Joseph instead of Zofossbel), Mr. Moore 
in his private copy of the Indexes struck out the birth date and by 
an addition made Joshua to be the 'son of Zerubbable or of 
John'."

12. Patience 3 Mayhew (Joanna 2 Christophers, Jeffery 1 ), born 

; baptized New London, June 9, 1693; died (she 

was alive May 19, 1702), at . I do not know whether 

she married or not. 

In the will of Abraham Corey, of Southold, N. Y., dated May 
19, 1702, her uncle by marriage, she is shown on that date to have 
been living in Southold with her aunt Margaret 2 (Christophers) 
Corey (wife of Abraham Corey). 

The name Patience as a baptismal name is of quite rare occur- 
rence in the early records of Southold. Patience 3 Mayhew ap- 
parently disappears entirely from the records of the town after 
the above quoted references. While not by any means positively 
asserting it, it seems that possibly she may have been the first wife 



i6 

Patience ? of John 4 Youngs of Southold (John, 3 Capt. 

Joseph, 2 Rev. Christopher 1 ), who died Jan. 10, 1715, and whose 
maiden surname has not been discovered. This is a suggestion 
worthy of further investigation. If, perchance, my suggestion is 
found to be a veritable fact then according to the Youngs Fam- 
ily by Selah Youngs, Jr., she left two sons, viz.: — (1) Wait 5 

Youngs, born , about 1712; died Dec. 12, 1735; (2) a son, 5 

who died March 26, 171 5. 

Patience 3 Mayhew was born early enough to have become the 
1st wife of John 4 Youngs and to have borne him the above two 
children and to have died as above stated January 10, 1715. She 
also had a brother Wait 3 Mayhew, after whom her son Wait 5 
Youngs may have been named. This Wait 5 Youngs was the only 
Youngs named Wait, mentioned in the Young's Genealogy, and 
it would seem that he may have been named after his uncle Wait 3 
Mayhew.

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of New England, Vol. I,

Christophers had a daughter Margaret Corey who married Wil- 
loughby Lynde of Saybrook. This is incorrect, the Margaret 



'7 

Corey who married Willoughby Lynde was the daughter of Abra- 
ham and Mary (Paine) Corey. Margaret (Corey) Lynde's birth 
date is entered in an ancient King Manuscript compiled by Ensign 
John King in his own family record as June 22, 1714. From this 
fact taken in connection with the fact that two of Ensign John 
King's children were named respectively Margaret and Abraham 
(after their grandparents Abraham and Margaret- (Christophers) 
Corey), — I have placed the two children Mary 4 (Corey) King and 
Margaret* (Corey) Lynde as children of Abraham 3 Corey by his 
wife Mary Paine. Moreover, Abraham Corey who married Mar- 
garet 2 Christophers died in 1702 and could not be the father of a 
Margaret Corey born June 22, 17 14. Griffin, however, states that 
Mary (Corey) King was a granddaughter of Jacob 2 Corey 
(John 1 ). For the above reason I think Griffin in error.

John, Elizabeth Lawes (or Lewis), Dorothea Dickerson, and grand- 
children, Braddick Corey and Alan- Wiggins. This will, therefore, 
shows that John 3 Corey's (Abraham, 2 John 1 ) wife was named Doro- 
thy. Moore's Indexes, p. 73, states that Abraham Corey, Jr., mar- 
ried Alice (or Ealce) Braddick in 1731 and had a son, Braddick 
Corey; and also states that this Abraham Corey, Jr., was probably 
a son of Abraham 2 Corey (John 1 ). The will of John 3 Corey (No. 
15) shows that Braddick 5 Corey was his grandson and it is evident 
that he was son of Abraham 4 Corey (John, 3 Abraham, 2 John 1 ). This 
Abraham* Corey is not mentioned in the will of his father (John 3 
Corey), for the reason that he was (at that date, Dec. 26, 1753) 
dead ; but his son Braddick 5 Corey is mentioned, this Braddick Corey 
got his name from his mother's father, Captain John Braddick. We 
know of but one John 3 Corey who married a Dorothy : — and there- 
fore all these facts taken into consideration together prove the rec- 
ord of John 3 Corey, No. 15) as given above. 

Moore's Indexes, p. "J2» states that John 3 Corey (Abraham, 1 
John 1 ) died May 2, 1717, and Miss Akerly (N. Y. Gen. and Biog. 
Record, Vol. XXXI, p. 229), states of this same John 3 Corey, — "he 
may have died May 2, 1717, or he may have married Dorothy Hobart 
and died in 1754." It appears therefore that Miss Akerly did not 
wholly agree with Moore. It is evident from all authorities that 
there was a John Corey, son of an Abraham Corey who died May 
2, 1717. Who was he? He was a son of Abraham 3 Corey by his 
wife Mary Paine. Mary (Paine) Corey is not recorded as having 
given birth to any children subsequent to June 22, 1714, when she 
gave birth to Margaret 4 Corey who married Willoughby Lynde. It 
is my belief that Mary (Paine) Corey wife of Abraham 3 Corey 
(Abraham, 2 John 1 ) gave birth some time soon previous to May 2, 
1717, to John 4 Corey who died soon after (or at) his birth on May 
2, 1717, and that the mother Mary (Paine) Corey died seven months 
and 19 days thereafter on Dec. 21, 1717 ; all of which is as I have 
recorded it in Record No. 13. 

It cannot be positively stated, from evidence at my disposal, who 
were the parents of Dorothy Hobart who married John 3 Corey. 
However, from the fact that Rev. Joshua Hobart was pastor at 
Southold, N. Y., from 1674 till 1717, we might be led to the belief 
that he was her father and that her mother was Mary (Sunderland) 
Rainsford, his second wife. 

Rev. Joshua Hobart was born July — , 1629, at Hingham, Eng- 
land, and came to this country with his parents (Rev. Peter and 

( ) Hobart, of Hingham, Mass.), in 1635; he died at Southold, 

N. Y., Feb. 28, 1716-17; graduated at Harvard College in 1650 and 
was made a freeman of Hingham, Mass., in 1653. On July 16, 1655, 
he sailed for Barbadoes and soon after while there on April 16, 
1656, he married Margaret Vassal (daughter of William and Ann 

( ) Vassal of the Island of Barbadoes and formerly of Scituate, 

Mass.), b. , 1633, in , England; d. , previous to July 

18, 1657, at Barbadoes ; subsequent to his wife's death he returned 



to Massachusetts, where on July 18, 1657, he, in the settlement of 
his father-in-law's estate, signed a deed "in behalf of his late wife." 
William Vassal, his father-in-law, died in 1655. While authorities 
are in doubt and at variance on the matter, yet, considering the 
short time his first wife lived after marriage, I am of the belief that 
he had no children by her. He soon after July 18, 1657, sailed for 
England and apparently remained there until 1669 when he returned 
to Boston and on Jan. 16, 1671-2 (or August — , 1674, according to 
Savage, Vol. Ill, p. 503), he married at Boston to Mary (Sunder- 
land) Rainsford (daughter of John and Dorothy ( ) Sunder- 
land of Boston, Mass., and widow of Jonathan Rainsford, whom she 
married at Boston, Nov. 29, 1656, and who was baptized at Boston, 
Oct. 23, 1636, and who died at Barbadoes, March 11, 1671) ; she was 
baptized at Boston, April 16, 1643 (being on that date one year and 
six weeks old), hence she was born about March 5, 1642; died April 
19 (and was buried April 20), 1698, at Southold, N. Y., aged 56 
years, 1 month and 7 days. Rev. Joshua Hobart was ordained pastor 
and settled at Southold, N. Y., Oct. 7, 1674, and in charge there un- 
til his death. By his second wife he had the following children, 
viz.: 

1. A daughter, b. Oct. 5, 1672, who d. . 

2. Alethea, b. Oct. 5, 1672, a twin. 

3. Irene, b. April 10, 1674, at Boston, who m. Daniel Way of 
Southold. 

4. Peter, b. Feb. 28, 1675-6, at Southold, N. Y., who probably m. 
Elizabeth Case. 

5. Daniel (perhaps), b. ; d. . 

6. John, b. , 1682; d. Aug. 7 (or 6), 1753, aged 71, at New 

London, Conn., and who m. ? and had children. 

These are all of the children ascribed by the various authorities 
to Rev. Joshua Hobart and amongst them all we find no daughter 
Dorothy. 

Moore in his Index, p. 21, suggests that Dorothy Hobart. who 
married John 3 Corey, was perhaps a daughter of Captain Josiah 
Hobart of Southampton, L. I., N. Y., who was born in 1634 and 
died in 171 1, at Easthampton, N. Y., in the 78th year of his age. 
Captain Josiah Hobart was a brother of Rev. Joshua Hobart of 
Southold. Savage (Vol. II, p. 435) says that his wife was named 

Mary ? In Vol. Ill, of Easthampton Town Records, on May 

10, 171 1, Mrs. Ann Hobart chooses land in behalf of her "orphan 
sons" which would make it appear that Captain Josiah Hobart's 
wife at time of death was named Mary. She may have been his 
second wife and by his first wife Mary he may have had a daughter 
Dorothy who became the wife of John 3 Corey. 

Rev. Gershom Hobart (brother of Rev. Joshua Hobart) had a 
daughter Dorothy, born in Boston, Dec. 6, 1677, and who died in 
Groton, Mass., June 10, 1686. Savage is in error as is likewise But- 
ler in his History of Groton in stating that Rev. Gershom Hobart 



had a daughter Dorothy Hobart born in Groton, June 10, 1686; she 
was not born but died in Groton on that date (see Groton Historical 
Series, Vol. I, No. XIII, p. 12). 

Positive proof of the parentage of Dorothy Hobart, wife of John 3 
Corey is thus to me not proven.

16. Mary 3 Corey (Margaret 2 Christophers, Jeffery 1 ), b. , 

1628, about (she had been twice married on May 19, 1702, 
hence she was probably born at least 20 years previous to that 

date), at Southold, N. Y. ; d. , at ; m. (1) (in 

the will of her father dated May 19, 1702, he speaks of her then 
as "now the wife of William Bradley" and leaves her a bequest 
"besides what I lent her at her first marriage ;" she is mentioned 
in Moore's Index of 1698 as still bearing her maiden surname ; 
and hence we conclude that her first marriage took place be- 
tween 1698 and some date prior to May 19, 1702), at , to

Bradley witnessed a deed of Tooker to Hallock, date of deed 
Feb. 25, 171 1 ; I find no record of him in Southold after that 

date), at . His parentage is unknown to me. The date of 

William Bradley's marriage to Mary 3 Corey was between 1698 
and May 19, 1702, and hence he must have been born (assum- 
ing him to have been 21 years old at least, at marriage) in 1681 
or earlier. This would place him as a contemporary of Chris- 
topher 3 Bradley (Peter, 2 Peter 1 ), who was born July 11, 1679, 
at New London. Were it not for the fact that Miss Caulkins 
states positively in her History of New London that the estate 
of Peter 2 Bradley (who died in 1687) was divided between his 
widow and only son Christopher 3 Bradley) one would be led to 
suppose that this William Bradley and Christopher 3 Bradley 
were brothers. But Miss Caulkins prohibits that conclusion, 
and I am unable to state who William Bradley was, where he 
came from, or where he went to after 171 1 the last date on 
which we have knowledge of him. 



Children: ? (Bradley), none that are known of.

In Hempstead's Diary, p. 280, under date of Oct. 20, 1734 (Sun-

In Bailey's Early Connecticut Marriages, Book II, p. 17, this mar- 
riage is recorded as follows: "Lemuel Lanthur and Mary Chappel 
were married at New London, Dec. 26, 1734." I record these en- 
tries here as by some it has been thought that Captain James Lam- 
pheer may have married Mary Chappel as his first wife, before he 
married Sarah 4 Mayhew. The above quoted entries seem to dis- 
pose of that belief.

30. The will of Justice Joshua Youngs (see record No. 11 of this 
genealogy) dated June 13, 1755, states that on that date, his daughter 
Mary Youngs, was a widow ; hence she must have married and lost 
her husband prior to that date. In that will she is called Mary 
Youngs, from which it would at first glance appear that she had 
married a Youngs, or else that on account of the fact of her hus- 
band's death some years previous, after but a short married life, 
her father still called her by her maiden surname. At all events 
we have the direct evidence that on June 13, 1755, she was a widow. 

What records have we of a Mary Youngs (born about 1710) 
having married previous to June 13, 1755, and subsequent to 1728 
(assuming her to have been at least 18 years old at marriage) ? 

Moore's Index, p. 137, states that "Mary Youngs (daughter of 
Judge Joshua and Mary (Mayhew) Youngs) married probably 
Landon (perhaps Daniel) in 1736." 

Moore's Index, p. 97, states that "Daniel Landon married Martha 
Youngs in 1736." 

From which we see that Moore in the first quotation was in 
doubt, and that in the second quotation he positively contradicts the 
doubtful suggestion of the first. In fact, as will be shown below, 
Mary Youngs (No. 30) did marry a Landon, but it was Samuel 
Landon, and he was her second husband. 

The Salmon Record, p. 84, states that, "Daniel Landon married 
Martha Youngs on May 22, 1736." 

The Salmon Record, p. 83, states that "Caleb Curtice married 
Mary Youngs on Nov. 21, 1734." 

Moore's Index, p. 74, states that "Caleb Curtice (b. , 1646; d. 

March 18, 1730, aged 84) married Dec. 1, 1670, Elizabeth Rider, 

and amongst other children had a son Caleb Curtice, b. , 1679, 

who married (1) Sarah Whittier in 1716, and married (2) Mary 
Youngs in 1734." 

The Youngs Genealogy, by Selah Youngs, p. 85, makes no men- 
tion of the marriage of Mary Youngs (daughter of Joshua and Mary 
(Mayhew) Youngs) either to Daniel Landon or to Caleb Curtice, 
but states that she married Samuel Landon, May 19, 1762 (when she 
was 52 years old), and by omitting all mention of a previous mar- 
riage ignores the fact of her being a widow on June 13, 1755. 

The Salmon Record, p. 97, states that "Justice Samuel Landon 
married Mary Yongs on May 19, 1762" (still calling her Mary 



3° 

Yongs, although she had according to her father's will been pre- 
viously married and was a widow on June 13, 1755). 

The Youngs Genealogy, by Selah Youngs, p. 85, quotes the will 
of Mary (Youngs) Landon, dated March 21, 1799, not probated; 
and this will proves beyond question that this Mary (Youngs) 
Landon was the daughter of Joshua and Mary (Mayhew) Youngs. 

From all of which it appears to me that Mary Youngs (No. 30) 
married first to Caleb Curtice on Nov. 21, 1734, as his second wife 
(his first wife having been the widow Sarah Whittier, whom he 
married July 3, 1716 (see Salmon, p. jj), and who died prior to 
Nov. 21, 1734). Caleb Curtice, the first husband of Mary Youngs 
(No. 30), died prior to May 19, 1762 (probably much earlier and 
certainly earlier than June 13, 1755, when her father speaks of her 
in his will as a widow), when she became the second wife of Justice 
Samuel Landon (his first wife having been Bethiah Tuttle, who 
died Aug. 30, 1761). 

It is upon this array of facts as set forth in the records that I 
construct the following record of Mary 4 Youngs ^No. 30). I gather 
from these facts, as set forth above, that, if my surmise is correct, 
then Mary 4 Youngs' marriage to Caleb Curtice, was that of a woman 
to a man some 30 years older than she was (he being 55 years old 
and she 24 years old), and that the marriage was followed shortly by 
his death (certainly before June 13, 1755). She Mary (Youngs) 
Curtice, a widow, went back to live with her father and possibly 
on account of the short duration of her married life with Caleb 
Curtice, she soon became known better by her maiden surname 
Youngs, than by her married name Curtice. 

All of this is offered as a solution of the question as to who was 
the first husband of Mary 4 Youngs (No. 30) who was a widow on 
June 13, 1755, and who married beyond a doubt (as her second 
husband) on May 19, 1762, to Justice Samuel Landon (as his sec- 
ond wife). 

30. Mary 4 Youngs (Mary 3 Mayhew, Joanna 2 Christophers, Jef- 

fery 1 ), b. , 1710 (or 1713), at Southold, N. Y. ; d. April

Record, Vol. XXVIII, p. 25), at Southold, N. Y. She married 
(1) possibly, Nov. 21, 1734, at Southold, to Caleb Curtice (or 

Curtis) as his 2nd wife, b. , 1679, at Southold, N. Y. ; d.

and Judge of Suffolk County, N. Y., 1764 to 1775, and one of the 
most prominent men of that locality of his time; d. Jan. 21, 1782, 
at Guilford, Conn., probably where he and his family had taken

Saybrook, Conn. ; he lived at Saybrook, Conn., and d. there 
April 10, 1753, aged 42. He was of Yale College, Class 1732, 
and afterwards a merchant in his native town. He was a son 
of Hon. Samuel Lynde, Yale College, 1707 (b. Oct. 29, 1689, 
at Saybrook; d. Sept. 19, 1754; m. April 4, 1710) and his first 

wife Rebecca Clark (b. ; d. Jan. 20, 1716, dau. of John 

Clark of Saybrook), of Saybrook, Conn.

1758, to Phebe Waterhouse (eldest dau. of John Wa- 
terhouse, of Saybrook) by whom he had five (5) chil- 
dren. By the death of his father a few months before 
he entered college, he became heir to a large estate; 
he graduated from Yale College 1757; he adopted no 
profession and acquired no good business habits and 
therefore soon exhausted his patrimony. After the 
Revolutionary War he was obliged to give up the in- 
herited family residence on Lynde Point, Saybrook. 
and removed to a small house in the northern part of 
the town, in what is now Chester, where he died in 
his 51st year. 



36 

Willoughby Lynde spent his life in Saybrook as a merchant en- 
joying the esteem of his fellow townsmen. The Boston News Letter 
of April 20 [1753], states: "We hear from Saybrook that Mr. Wil- 
loughby Lynde went out on Monday morning the 10th instant, and 
when he returned complained of a great pain in his head and tem- 
ples and walking about the house fell down and died immediately." 
Dexter's Yale Biographies states that his wife was a daughter of 
Russell Corey of Southold, N. Y., in which statement I think the 
compiler in error. Willoughby Lynde's widow [according to Yale 
Biographies] married a second time to a Mr. Avery of Saybrook 
and subsequently (probably in 1774) to Capt. Samuel Wells of Mid- 
dletown, Conn.

HON. CHISTOPHER 1 CHRISTOPHERS AND HIS 
DESCENDANTS 

Hon. Christopher 1 Christophers, b. , 1631, about (as 

he was 56 years old at his date of death, June 23, 1687), at , 

England (possibly Devonshire as his son Richard 2 Christo- 
phers was born at Cherston Ferrers, on Torbay, near Dart- 
mouth, in Devonshire, England) ; he came over to this country 
either direct from England or by the way of Barbadoes and 
settled in New London, Conn., about 1665. His house in New 
London was located where now is the northwest corner of 
Main and Federal Streets ; he was engaged largely in the ship- 
ping exchange trade with Barbadoes and was the owner of 
many vessels. He died July 23, 1687, aged 56, at New London, 
Conn., and was buried there in Old Burying Ground, gravestone. 
He m. (1) (before 1650, as his 1st child John 2 Christo- 
phers was born about 1650), at , England, probably, to 

Mary ? (whose maiden surname and parentage are not 

known), b. , 1621 (see age at and date of death), at 

(England, probably) ; d. July 13, 1676, at New London, Conn., 



42 

a g ed 55 years, and was there buried in Old Burying Ground, 
gravestone. He m. (2) , 1676, about (according to Caul- 
kin's History of New London, p. 251). The exact date of the 
marriage is not known, but a certificate is entered upon one 
of the town record books of New London, without mention of 
time or place, or the name of the officiating magistrate, record- 
the marriage of Christopher 1 Christophers and the widow 
Bradley; this certificate is attested to by two witnesses, viz: 
Mary Shapley and Jane Hill, the latter a child of 8 or 9 years 
of age, both nieces of the bride. Jane Hill was born Dec. 9, 
1669, and was therefore 8 or 9 years old in 1677 or 1678; so, 
if this record is correct the marriage took place about 1677-8. 
It is more probable that it took place immediately after the 
death of Christopher Christopher's first wife Mary's death, 
which took place July 13, 1676. Sufficient grounds existed to 
necessitate a speedy marriage between the two, if any marriage 
at all was to take place (see Caulkin's History of New London, 
p. 251), to Elizabeth (Brewster) Bradley (widow of Peter 1 
Bradley of New London, Conn., who d. June — , 1662), born 
May 1, 1637, at Duxbury, Mass.; d. Feb. — , 1708, "aged 
about 70," at New London, Conn., and was buried there in 
Old Burying Ground, gravestone. She was a daughter of 
Hon. Jonathan 2 (William 1 ) and Lucretia (Oldham) Brewster, 
of New London, Conn. 

Children: by first marriage, 3 (Christophers), 2 sons and 1 
daughter, viz: 

+2 i. John, 2 b. (1650 about); d. Feb. 3, 1703; m. 

Elizabeth Mulford. - 

+3 ii. Mary, 2 b. , 1657 (see age at and date of death) ; 

d. July 24, 1724, aged 67 ; m. (1) Peter 2 Bradley; 
m. (2) Capt. Thomas Youngs; m. (3) Nathaniel 
Lynde. 
+4 iii. Richard, 2 b. July 13, 1662; d. June 9, 1726; m. (1) 

Lucretia Bradley; m. (2) Grace Turner. 
Children by second marriage 2 (named either Christophers or 
Bradley), sex not stated: 

-j-5 iv. (child, sex not stated), b. , previous to 1673 

(see Caulkin's History of New London, p. 251). 

-\-6 v. (child, sex not stated), b. , 1673, (see Caulkin's 

History of New London, p. 251). 
Christopher 1 Christophers having purchased the Doxey or Lane 
home-lot, on the Town Street (now Main Street, New London), 
built thereon about 1680, a new house which is supposed to have 
been the same structure in frame and fashion that at the date of 
publication of Caulkin's History of New London was then and 
previously known as the Wheat House. According to tradition the 
timber of which the frame was built grew upon the spot. After 
one hundred and seventy years of existence the frame was still 



43 

firm and substantial. It was one of the six fortified houses in 
1676, and subsequently when enlarged, the addition was built over 
the old sloping roof. Another and larger house was built by the 
side of it on the same home-lot and probably on the site of the Doxey 
or Lane house about the year 17 19, in which latter house resided the 
second Christopher 3 Christophers, a grandson of Christopher 1 Chris- 
tophers. This house was at the time of writing of Caulkin's History 
of New London, known as the Hurlbut House (corner of Main and 
Federal Street, New London). Both of these houses were de- 
molished in 185 1 and the modern residences of Messrs. Miner and 
Lawrence were built on the ground. Mr. Miner's house occupying 
the corner and Mr. Lawrence's adjoining on Main Street. 

Christopher 1 Christophers brought with him to New London a 
wife Mary and three children, viz. : John, 2 Mary 2 and Richard. 2 An 
ancient record in the family states that his son, Richard 2 Christo- 
phers, was born July 13, 1662, at "Chof ton's Ferris" in Devonshire, 
England (probably Cherston Ferrers, a village on Torbay, near 
Dartmouth). Mrs. Mary Christophers, his first wife, d. July 13, 
1676, aged 55 years, which makes her 10 years older than her hus- 
band, whom she pre-deceased by 11 years also. Her gravestone 
is the second in chronological sequence in the Old Burying Ground ; 
being next in date of death to the tablet erected to the memory of 
Richard Lord. Christopher 1 Christopher's second wife, Elizabeth 3 
(Brewster) Bradley, relict of Peter 1 Bradley of New London, sur- 
vived her second husband Christopher 1 Christophers ; she d. at New 
London. Feb. — , 1708, aged "about seventy," and was buried in 
the Old Burying Ground, gravestone ; a portion of her gravestone 
bearing the year and day of her death is broken off and missing; 
but if she was (as it is stated and which agrees with the date of 
her birth) forty-two years old in 1680 and was "about seventy years 
old" at death (b. May 1, 1637), she must have d. about 1708 (see 
Caulkin's History of New London, p. 277). 

The first mention made of Christopher 1 Christophers in New 
London records is in the year 1665, when he made and recorded a 
co-partnership with Charles Hill ; thus forming what was the first 
co-partnership in shipping and trading in New London of- which 
there remains any record. The names of both these partners appear 
that year for the first time on the roll of inhabitants of New Lon- 
don, and the earliest specific date relating to them is June 26, 1665, 
when they purchased on Mill Cove, the warehouses and wharfage 
where Richard Hartley and John Tinker had formerly traded. In 
the articles of co-partnership they are styled "Charles Hill of Lon- 
don, guirdler and Christopher Christophers mariner." The firm of 
Hill and Christophers was engaged in trade with Barbadoes. 

Several vessels were built by Mould and Coit, shipwrights of 
New London for the partners Hill and Christophers, among them 
were the New London, 70 tons, delivered to the owners June 25, 
1666, and called a ship; the barque Regard in 1668; and the sloop 
Charles, 22 tons, in 1672. The New London was a larger vessel 



44 

than any theretofore constructed in New London and was employed 
on voyages to Europe. Thomas Forster, John Prout and John 
Prentiss (the second of the name) were successively her com- 
manders. Almost every merchant that sent out vessels at that period 
made occasional voyages himself, either as master or as super- 
cargo. 

The farms of Mr. Blinman at Pine Neck and Fort Hill were 
purchased by Christopher 1 Christophers from Mr. Blinman after 
the latter had returned to England, on Jan. 10, 1670-1. The deed 
of conveyance being signed by "Richard Blinman, with Mary my 
wife, now dwelling in the castle, in the City of Bristol, England, 10 
January 1670-1." 

An Indian named Tatto-bitton, sole surviving son of a noted 
Indian of those parts, known as the Giant on account of his im- 
mense stature, sold his share of his father's land to Christopher 1 
Christophers, July 1, 1687. This land here referred to was at 
Black Point and was sufficient to form two or three moderate farms. 
A considerable part of this land fell by inheritance to the children of 
Thomas Manwaring, whose wife was Esther 3 Christophers (John, 2 
Christopher 1 ). 

In the disputes as to land ownership which arose in 1667 between 
the towns of New London and Saybrook, the town of New London 
appointed (amongst others) the partners Hill and Christophers 
members of a commission to recover the rights of New London 
and settle the boundary "according to ancient grants of the Court." 

From the above stated facts quoted in most part verbatim from 
various parts of Caulkin's History of New London, it appears that 
Christopher 1 Christophers was able to establish himself immediately 
upon his arrival in New London as a trading merchant and ship 
owner whose prosperity seemed to be an already established fact, 
or else was of unusually speedy development after his arrival there — 
as is evidenced by his almost immediately purchasing ships of con- 
siderable value for the firm to which he belonged, and by his subse- 
quent acquisition of large landed interests. He was well thought 
of in the community and left the imprint of his force and character 
upon the children he left to succeed him. He was a Deputy to the 
General Assembly of Connecticut at Hartford, to represent New 
London, Oct. II, 1683, and Oct. 8, 1685. 

He seems to have been possessed of certain moral weaknesses 
which reflect in no flattering manner on his character for purity of 
body. These moral delinquencies were as prevalent in those early 
days as they are now in modern times. These defects of character 
in no wise prevented him from being one of the leading men of 
New London, and he moreover did all in his power to extenuate 
the wrong done by him by his subsequent marriage to the widow 
Bradley. 

From the date given for the birth of his son Richard 2 Christo- 
phers at Cherston-Ferrers, Eng., July 13, 1662, it would seem that, 
as he appeared in New London, as early as June 26, 1665, New 



45 

London must have been his first and only place of residence after 
leaving England, in which he established anything other than a 
temporary abiding place. Savage says that he probably sailed from 
England to Barbadoes and almost immediately thereafter removed 
to and settled in New London. 

Both Christopher 1 Christophers and his first wife Mary ( ) 

Christophers lie buried in the Old Burying Ground in New Lon- 
don, which is situated to the immediate North of Bulkley School 
(1897) which latter structure stands upon the approximate site of 
the First Meeting House in New London. Their graves are marked 
with stones thus inscribed : 

"Here lyes ye body of Mrs. Mary Christophers, ye wife of Mr. 
Christophers, who died July ye 13 Anno 1676, and in ye 55 year 
of her age." "Here lyes ye body of Mr. Christopher Christophers 
who died July ye 23, Anno 1687 in ye 56 year of his age." 

In the graveyard inscriptions copied from the Old Burying 
Ground, New London, by Edward Prentis, 1899, we find the fol- 
lowing recorded as the then present condition of the gravestone 
of Mrs. Elizabeth (Brewster) Bradley-Christophers, second wife 
and widow of Christopher 1 Christophers, viz : 

"Here ly of Mrs. Eliza phers, wife of topher 

Christ , who died Feb. ye , aged about 70" with a foot stone 

inscribed "Mrs. Elizabeth Christophers." 

Elizabeth 3 Brewster m. (1) , at (New London, prob- 
ably, although no record of the marriage exists), to Peter 1 Bradley 
of New London, Conn., who came to New London in 1654 and 
whose parentage and place of origin is as yet not determined ; b. 

, at ; d. June — , 1662 (according to Caulkin's History of 

New London, p. 278, which probably refers to the date of its rec- 
ording in that town), or April 3, 1662 (according to a genealogical 
article by Annie Haxtun in the Mail and Express, N. Y. City, 
Oct. 21, 1897, which probably gives real date of death), at 
"Flushen" (Flushing), Long Island, N. Y., where an inventory of 
"his boat and sea clothing was taken. He first made his appear- 
ance in New London in 1654 and was a mariner plying his vessel 
to ports along the sound. Peter 1 Bradley's home lot in New London 
was originally John Gallup's ; it was situated east of Town (now 
Main) Street, between the location of the present Federal Street 
and State Street and sloped down to a marsh where is now located 
Water Street. This home lot was appraised in the inventory of 
Peter 1 Bradley at only £30. The Bradley house was near the 
north end of this lot with a lane leading to the house from Town 
(Main) Street. In more recent times the Bradley house was known 
as the Shackmaple house. North of this, and originally a part of 
the Bradley lot was the homestead of Daniel Wetherell (where 
later was the Pool property). Some other small portions were 
sold by Peter 2 Bradley, Jr. ; but after his father's death it remained 
unimproved and integral until 1730, when it was sold by Jonathan 4 



46 

Bradley of Southold (son of Christopher 3 Bradley, deceased) to 
Daniel Tuthill for £500. It was then estimated as eight acres. 
Tuthill had it laid out in streets (one of which is now called Bradley 
Street) and blocks, and sub-divided into small house-lots which 
were put immediately into the market and at the time of writing of 
Caulkin's History of New London, there were nearly two hundred 
houses on this land.

hampton of a sloop cast away in ye great storm 
(Monday night was seven night) at Montauket, South 
Side. She is concluded to be a sloop from Marte- 
neco, belonged to Rhode Island. Not one soul saved 
to tell news. Four men are already found washed 
on shore of which John Christophers ye only son of 
John Christophers, deceased is one who sailed hence 
last winter with Peter Manwaring for Marteneco, 
where ye vessel was seized. It is feared that Man- 
waring and George Plumbe and young Gorton were 
passengers also and were drowned, all of which is 
confirmed." John 3 Christophers was not married, 
and being the only son of his father John 2 Christo- 
phers, his death without issue left the perpetuation of 
the Christopher's name in the family of his brother 
Hon. Richard 2 Christophers, who is therefore the 
ancestor of all those who subsequent to this date 
July 29, 1723, bore the name of Christophers in New 
London.

chant and lawyer and Clerk of the County Court and a Deputy to 
the General Assembly in 1727; he d. at New London, Dec. 9, 1738, 
aged 53, and was buried there in Old Burying Ground, no grave- 
stone. His will was dated Dec. 5, 1738. He was a son of Adam 2 
Picket (John 1 ), b. Nov. 15, 1658; d. , 1691, by his wife Han- 
nah Wetherell (daughter of Daniel and Grace (Brewster) Wetherell, 
of New London. Adam 2 Picket was a son of John 1 Picket and 
brother of John 2 Picket of New London.

London. Not in Christophers line:

From Hempstead's Diary, p. 100, we gather the following: "Sun- 
day August 14, 1720. Mrs. Elizabeth Picket died last night. 
Seventy, in about 6 hours," from which I interpret that she was 
seventy years old. She was buried Aug. 15, 1720, at New London. 
As she was 70 years old at death, she was b. about 1650, which 
gives a hint as to the date of birth of her first husband John 2 
Christophers. For, if, as is probable, he was older than his wife, 
he, John 2 Christophers must have been b. earlier than 1650, which 
would make him the eldest son of his parents.

Hon. Richard 2 Christophers was a merchant trading between 
New London and Barbadoes and other West Indian ports ; he was 
a practical mariner also, making frequent voyages in command 
of his own ships in the prosecution of his commercial ventures. He 
was associated in business with John 2 Picket (John 1 ) of New 
London, Conn. The passage from Barbadoes to New London us- 
ually took place from 18 to 30 days. Thomas Prentis and Richard 2 
Christophers were veterans in this trade. One of the vessels of 
Captain Richard 2 Christophers bore the happy name of his two 
daughters, Grace and Ruth. Two brigantines, also styled ships, the 
Adventure and the Society of 65 and 68 tons burden respectively, 
and both built in Great Britain were owned in 1698 by John Picket 
and Richard Christophers. The value of such vessels when new 
was about £500. Some of the plate in the Communion Service 
of the First Congregational Church of New London bears the 
inscription: "Presented by the owners of the Sloop Adventure in 
1699." 

Richard 2 Christophers was appointed Town Clerk of New Lon- 
don in 1 701 and served as such until 1706, inclusive. His name was 
fourth on the list of patentees, in the patent granted the town of 
New London by his Majesty Charles II of England, through the 
Governor and his Company at Hartford, Oct. 14, 1704 — his name 
being preceded by those of John Winthrop, Waite Winthrop, and 
Daniely Wetherell. 

In July, 1694, Richard 2 Christophers was appointed one of a 
committee by the town of New London "to agree with workmen 
for building the new meeting-house, and managing the whole con- 
cern about it." In 1726 he was appointed first (senior) townsman 
of New London ; and at his death in that same year, he left a large 
estate to his wife, his two sons and seven daughters who survived 
him. Hempstead in his diary (a very ancient manuscript, now in 
the possession of the New London County Historical Society, all 
parts of which have been recovered and the complete manuscript 
published in full by the Society) says that on the occasion of Mr. 
Richard 2 Christophers' funeral (Saturday, June II, 1726), "The 
Great Ship fired 26 great guns at one half minute distance, there 
were six bearers." A description of the "Great Ship" will be found 
in Caulkin's History of New London, p. 242. 

The Superior Court was held for the first time in New London 
in 1711. No Court House having then been erected, the session 
was held in the meeting-house. Before this year the Superior Court 
had only sat at New Haven and at Hartford. In 171 1, it was made 



53 

a Circuit Court, each County having two sessions annually. Richard 
Christophers was one of the Assistant Judges of this Court. 

In addition to his private business and town offices, Richard 2 
Christophers was a man much employed in the affairs of New Lon- 
don County and in those of the Colony of Connecticut; he was in 
fact one of the most prominent and important men of his time in 
the Colony, as will be seen from the following summary of his 
Colonial activities, as taken from the published Records of the 
Colony, viz. : 

Assistant to the Governor 1699 and 1703 to 1722, inclusive. In 
1723 owing to failing health he withdrew from public life. Com- 
missioner for the County of New London to the General Assembly 
1690-1697, inclusive. Commissary (military office) of the County 
of New London, 1690 and 1693. Justice of the Peace, 1701-1702. 
Deputy to the General Assembly to represent New London, 1691, 
1693. Judge of the County Court of New London, 1709-1716, 
inclusive and in 1720, 1721, Judge of Probate for the District of 
New London, 1710-1721. Judge of Superior Court of Connecticut 
Colony, 1711-1721, inclusive. On Committee to audit accounts of 
the Colonial Treaurer, 1703-1721, inclusive. And in addition to 
these specific duties he sat as a member of the Court of the Gov- 
ernor and Council at frequent sessions during the various years of 
his public life and served as a member of all of the most important 
committees appointed by the Colonial legislation of Connecticut. 

His will is to be found recorded in the 5th Book of Wills at 
New London, folio 155-157. Will was dated July 13, 1720, with 
codicil dated Feb. 7, 1721-22, and was proved Aug. 8, 1726. In it 
he mentions his wife Grace, sons Christopher and Richard, and 
daughters Mary Gray (widow of John Gray, deceased), Grace, 
Lydia. Ruth, Joanna, Lucretia and Lucy. In the codicil dated Feb. 
7, 1721-2 he makes modified provision for his daughter Lydia "who 
married last May" (/. c, May 9, 1721). Wife Grace was made sole 
Executrix.

5-6. The two children 2 (Hon. Christopher 1 ), b. between April 3, 
1662, and the year 1673, to the "widow Bradley," the father 
being Christopher 1 Christophers. 

By reference to Caulkin's History of New London, p. 251, it 
appears from the Records of the County Court of New London 
for the year 1673 that the "Widow Bradley" [Elizabeth (Brewster) 
Bradley, widow of Peter 1 Bradley of New London] had two chil- 
dren by Christopher 1 Christophers, born out of wedlock, the last one 
born in 1673 and the first one born previous to that date. We find 



54 

no further mention of these children in the New London records 
and it would therefore seem probable that they both died young. 
Moreover, the sex of these two children is not mentioned. The 
hypothesis of their death in childhood is not however established by 
any direct evidence. If they lived it is to be presumed that these 
children were known by definite surnames ; and, in as much as they 
were born of the "Widow Bradley," it is probable that they bore 
the surname Bradley. Peter 1 Bradley d. April 3, 1662, and it was 
between that date and the year 1673 that these two children were 
born. Peter 2 Bradley, the only son of Peter 1 Bradley d. Aug. 1, 
1687, leaving only one child Christopher 3 Bradley, b. July 11, 1679. 
These two illegitimate children of the "Widow Bradley" were then 
of about the same age as Christopher 3 Bradley (the grandson of 
Peter 1 Bradley). By reference to record No. 16 of the Descend- 
ants of Jeffery 1 Christophers, it will be seen that a William Bradley 

(whose parentage has not as yet been determined) m. previous 

to May 19, 1702, to Mary 3 (Corey) ? (as her second husband). 

Assuming this William Bradley was at least 21 years old (and 
probably older) at marriage, he must have been born prior to May 
19, 1681 (and probably some years prior to that year). Who was 
this William Bradley whose parentage and origin we know nothing 
of? 

Could he have been one of these two children born to the 
"Widow Bradley" whose father was Christopher 1 Christophers?

11. Christopher 3 Bradley (Mary 2 Christophers, Hon. Chris- 
topher 1 ). 

Before elaborating the record of Christopher 3 Bradley, I will 
herewith set forth my reasons for his record as subsequently 
recorded : 

1. Caulkins' History of New London, p. 278, states that Peter 2 
Bradley (Peter 1 ) d. in 1687, leaving but one child, a son Christopher 3 
Bradley, b. July 11, 1679; an d that the County Court summarily 
settled Peter 2 Bradley's estate, giving the widow £300, and the son 
Christopher 3 Bradley £590. On page 279 of same authority, we see 
that in 1730 Jonathan 4 Bradley, of Southold, N. Y., son of Chris- 
topher 3 Bradley, deceased, sold the remnant of the land he held in 
New London (by heritance from his father) for £500 to Daniel 
Tuthill. 

2. Jonathan 4 Bradley (Christopher 3 ) of Southold, N. Y., 
made his will July 31, 1739, which was proved Nov. 23, 1739 (Liber 
13, p. 442 of Wills, and E. D. Harris' Long Island Epitaphs, p. 40), 
and in it he mentions his sons Peter and Grant, and daughters Mary, 
Mehitable, Hannah and Martha, and his brother-in-law Lieut. Con- 
stant Booth and his brother Daniel Tuthill. 

3. The Horton Genealogy, by George F. Horton, p. 12, states 
that Jonathan 2 Horton (Barnabas 1 ) m. Bethia Wells, and had a 
daughter Mehitable 3 Horton, who married first to Peter Bradley, 
and second to Deacon Daniel Tuthill. 

4. The New York Historical Society Wills, Vol. 1708-1728, p. 
4, gives the will of Jonathan 2 Horton, dated Feb. 21, 1706-7, proved 
June 2. 1708 ; and in it the testator mentions "my daughter Mehitable, 
wife of Daniel Tuthill." 



57 

5. New York Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXIX, pp. 215-16, 
states that Daniel 4 Tuthill (John, 3 Henry, 2 Henry 1 ) of Southold, 
N. Y., b. Jan. 23, 1679; d. Dec. 7, 1762; m. , 1705 (or 1706, ac- 
cording to Moore's Index of Southold, p. 91) Mehitable 3 Horton 
(Jonathan. 2 Barnabas 1 ), b. Feb. 17, 1679; d. Sept. 7, 1757. And also 
states that Mehitable 3 Horton was the widow of Peter Bradley when 
she married Daniel Tuthill, who was a Deacon in the Southold 
Church ; and that Mehitable 3 Horton by her second husband, Deacon 
Daniel 4 Tuthill, had a son Daniel 5 Tuthill, b. Jan. 15, 1712. 

6. Moore's Index of Southold, N. Y '., p. 7, states that Peter 2 
Bradley (Peter 1 of New London), had a son Christopher, and per- 
haps a son Peter (note that Moore says perhaps, while Caulkins, p. 
278 states positively that Peter 2 Bradley had but one child, a son 
Christopher 3 Bradley). 

The known genealogical tree of Peter 1 Bradley, of New London, 
and his descendants is as follows : 

1 Peter 1 Bradley, b. ; d. April 3, 1662; m. Sept. 7, 1683, 

Elizabeth 3 Brewster (Jonathan, 2 Elder William 1 ), b. May 1, 
1637; d. , 1708. 

Children: 4 (Bradley): Elizabeth, 2 Hannah, 2 Peter, 2 Lu- 
cretia 2 (note that there is but one son). 

2 Peter 2 Bradley (only son), b. Sept. 7, 1658; d. Aug. 1, 1687; 

m. May 9, 1678, Mary 2 Christophers (Christopher 1 ), b. , 

1657; d. July 4, 1724, aged 67. 

Child: 1 (Bradley) son, Christopher. 3 

3 Christopher 3 Bradley, b. July 11, 1679; d. ?! m - • 

who was born ; d. . 

Children: 2 (Bradley) sons: Jonathan 4 (see Caulkins' His- 
tory of New London, p. 279, and Moore's Index, p. 59) ; 

James, 4 b. , 1704-5; d. Feb. 6, 1724-5, aged 20 (see 

Moore's Index, p. 59) who d. a minor unmarried and hence 
left no issue. 

4 Jonathan 4 Bradley (only son that reached maturity), b. ; 

d. (before Nov. 23, 1739, date of probate of his will) ; 

m. , 1722, Mary Booth, b. Aug. 27, 1703; d. , 1738. 

Children: 6 (Bradlev) : Peter,, 6 Grant, 5 Mary, 5 Mehitable, 5 
Hannah, 5 Martha 5 (see N. Y. G. & B. Record, Vol. XXXII. 
P- 2 39)- 

The question now is who was the Peter Bradley that the Horton 
Genealogy, p. 12, and the Tuthill Genealogy, bv Miss Lucy D. 
Akerly (N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXIX, pp. 215-16) state 
married Mehitable 3 Horton as her first husband ? 

From the above genealogical tree of the Bradleys, we find no 
Peter Bradley who was born early enough to have married Mehit- 
able 3 Horton as her first husband, and who died early enough for 
her to have married in 1705 (or 1706) to Daniel 4 Tuthill as her sec- 
ond husband. Mehitable 3 Horton. herself, was born Feb. 17, 1679, 
and her first husband (according to Horton Genealogy, p. 12, and 



58 

N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXIX, p. 215-16), Peter Brad- 
ley, must have been born fully as early, if not earlier (i. e., 1679 or 
earlier). On consulting the above tree we see that the only male 
Bradley born about that time whose marriage is not otherwise ac- 
counted for is Christopher 3 Bradley (only child and only son of 
Peter 2 Bradley, who in turn was the only son of Peter 1 Bradley). 
This Christopher 3 Bradley was born July II, 1679, and was of a 
proper and suitable age to become the husband of Mehitable 3 Horton. 
And furthermore, we are unable to find a Peter Bradley who could 
have been the first husband of Mehitable 3 Horton. 

The statement made in the Horton Genealogy, p. 12, and like- 
wise in the N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXIX, pp. 215-16, that 
a Peter Bradley was the first husband of Mehitable 3 Horton is not 
supported by any quoted authority, and we do not know upon what 
argument said statement was made. On the other hand, Moore's 
Index of Southold, p. 91, states that Mehitable 3 Horton (Jonathan 2 ) 
married Daniel 4 Tuthill, and does not state that, at the time of her 
marriage to Daniel 4 Tuthill, she was the widow of a Peter Bradley 
(nor in fact does Moore state that she was a widow of any one else). 

It therefore appears that the statement that Mehitable 3 Horton's 
first husband was a Peter Bradley is not based upon a foundation 
of positive recorded evidence to that effect, but that there seems to 
have been an established belief that she was a widow of some Brad- 
ley at the time of her second marriage in 1705 (or 1706) to Daniel 4 
Tuthill. So much therefore in refutation of the statement that 
Mehitable 3 Horton's first husband was Peter Bradley. 

Jonathan 4 Bradley (Christopher 3 ) in his will, calls Daniel Tut- 
hill his brother. How could Daniel Tuthill have been the brother 
of Jonathan 4 Bradley? Daniel 4 Tuthill was born Jan. 23, 1679, an d 
died Dec. 7, 1762, and married in 1705 (or 1706) to Mehitable 3 Hor- 
ton, who was at the time of her marriage to Daniel 4 Tuthill, the 
widow of a Mr. Bradley (by some said to have been a Peter Brad- 
ley, with which statement we disagree, as there was no contem- 
poraneous Peter Bradley of whom she could have been the widow) 
and by his marriage to Mehitable (Horton) Bradley, Daniel 4 Tuthill 
had a son Daniel 5 Tuthill, born Jan. 15, 1712. From the above gene- 
alogical Bradley tree, the only way to account for Jonathan 4 Bradley 
calling Daniel Tuthill brother is under the hypothesis that Jonathan 4 
Bradley was the son of Christopher 3 Bradley by Mehitable 3 Horton, 
and she by her second marriage to Daniel 4 Tuthill had a son Daniel 5 
Tuthill who would be a half-brother of Jonathan 4 Bradley, and 
which fully accounts for calling him brother in the will. Jonathan 4 
Bradley also calls Constant Booth brother-in-law, which is correct, 
as Jonathan 4 Bradley married Mary Booth, sister of Constant Booth. 

In my study of the records of Southold, I have been unable to 
find any direct evidence of the date of death of Christopher 3 Brad- 
ley ; nor is there any direct evidence of the maiden surname or bap- 
tismal name of his wife. We know, however, from Caulkins, p. 
279, and from Moore's Index, p. 59, that he did marry and had the 



59 

two above mentioned children, Jonathan 4 and James 4 ; and from the 
fact that Jonathan 4 Bradley calls Daniel 5 Tuthill his brother (mean- 
ing his half-brother), it is clear and proven beyond question that the 
first husband of Mehitable 3 Horton was Christopher 3 Bradley (son 
of Peter 2 Bradley, of New London), and that Mehitable 3 Horton's 
first husband was not Pcicr Bradley, as stated in Horton Genealogy, 
p. 12. and the N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXIX, pp. 215-6. 

Christopher 3 Bradley married probably about or after July 11, 
1700, as at that time he would be of age, and August 24, 1700, he 
received his estate from the hands of his step-father, Thomas 
Youngs (see copy of receipt by him to Thomas Youngs under record 
No. 3 of the descendants of Christopher 1 Christophers). 

Based upon the argument as above set forth, the following is the 
record of Christopher 3 Bradlly, viz. : 

11. Christopher 3 Bradley (Mary 2 Christophers, Hon. Chris- 
topher 1 ), b. July 11, 1679, at New London, Conn.; he lived at 
New London until after his father's death in 1687, and removed 
to Southold, N. Y., with his mother, when she became the wife 
of Thomas Youngs; d. (subsequent to 1703-4, for the rea- 
son that his son James 4 Bradley d. Feb. 6, 1724-5, aged 20, and 
hence was b. about 1704-5, and he, Christopher, must have been 
alive fully 9 months previous to 1704-5 to have begotten this son 
James 4 Bradley; his widow Mehitable (Horton) Bradley m. a 
second time to Daniel 4 Tuthill early enough to have a child b. 
Sept. 9, 1706 ; and 9 months earlier than Sept. 9, 1706, is Dec. 9, 
1705; all of which places the date of his death about 1703-4 or 
perhaps 1705) ; he d. at Southold, N. Y., probably, although we 
have no record of his death and no stone marks his grave. He 

married (probably soon after Aug. 24, 1700, when he was 

a little over 21 years old and when he received his estate from 
his step-father, Thomas Youngs), at Southold, N. Y. (prob- 
ably) to Mehitable Horton (as her first husband), b. Feb. 17, 
1679, at Southold, N. Y. ; d. Sept. 7, 1757, at Southold, N. Y. 
She was a daughter of Jonathan Horton (b. Feb. 23, 1648; d. 

Feb. 23, 1707; m. , 1672, about) and his wife Bethia Wells 

b. ; d. April 14, 1733; daughter of William Wells, one of 

the first settlers of Southold, N. Y.), of Southold, N. Y. 

Children: 2 (Bradley) sons, both born at Southold, N. Y. 

-f-42 i. Jonathan, 4 b. , after 1700; d. , after July 

31, 1739 (date of will) and before Nov. 23, 1739 
(date of probate of will) ; m. Mary Booth. 

43 ii. James, 4 b. , 1704-5; d. Feb. 6, 1724-5, aged 20, 

at Southold, N. Y. ; not married. 

The following is the record of Christopher 3 Bradley as taken 
from Moore's Index of Southold, p. 59, viz.: 

"Bradley, Christopher (son of Peter 2 and grandson of Peter 1 of 
New London), b. , 1679; probably had children, brothers or 



6o 

relatives (after 1698), viz.: Jonathan, who married Mary Booth in 
1622; she died in 1738, and he died in 1739, leaving a will (his son 

William died in 1728, aged 2 years. James, b. , 1704-5 ; d. Feb. 

6, 1724-5, aged 20." 

"1697. Christopher Bradley, witness to deed of Petty to T. 
Youngs, Nov. 3, 1697 (see Town Records Southold, Vol. II, p. 
206)." 

"1698. Christopher Bradley, living with or near Thomas Youngs 
of Southold, his step-father." 

"1700. Christopher Bradley, acknowledges payment of his leg- 
acies (from his father) by Thomas Youngs (Town Records South- 
old, Vol. II, pp. 207-8, 524)." 

Mehitable (Horton) Bradley, widow of Christopher 3 Bradley, m. 

(2) , 1705 (or 6) (her first child by this marriage was b. Sept. 

9, 1706) at Southold. N. Y., probably, to Daniel 4 Tuthill, b. Jan. 23, 
1679, at Southold, N. Y. ; he was a deacon in the church there ; d. 
Dec. 7, 1762. at Southold, N. Y. He was a son of John Tuthill (b. 
July 16, 1635; d. Oct. 12, 1717; m. Feb. 17, 1657) and his first wife, 
Deliverance King (baptized Salem, Mass., 1641-31-8; d. Jan. 25, 
1688-9), of Southold, N. Y. 

Children: 8 (Tuthill), 4 sons and 4 daughters, all b. at South- 
old, N. Y. Not in Christopher's line, viz.: 

1 Mehitable, b. Sept. 9, 1706; d. ; m. Thomas Terry, March 

18, 1723. 

2 Nathaniel, b. July 1, 1708; d. March 1, 1732; m. Hannah 
King. 

3 Abigail, b. April 9, 1710; d. ; m. Henry Haven. 

4 Daniel, b. Jan. 15, 1712; d. Nov. 18, 1768; m. Mehitable 
Budd, Oct. 30, 1733. 

5 Noah, b. March 13, 1714; d. (will proved May 31, 

1766) ; m. Hannah Tuthill, Nov. 2, 1738. 

6 Patience, b. March 11, 1716; d. ; m. John Havens, Oct. 

24- 1733- 

7 Lydia, b. May 6, 1718; d. Aug. 25, 1780; m. Jonathan Terry, 
Sept. 19, 1737. 

8 Mary, b. June 30, 1721 ; d. ; m. Nathan Tuthill. 

Daniel Tuthill, the second husband of Mehitable (Horton) Brad- 
ley, was the Daniel Tuthill. to whom Jonathan 4 Bradley, in 1730, sold 
his land in New London for £500. 

Hempstead's Diary, p. 163, states: Under date of Dec. 9, 1725: 
"In the morn I dd Jonat Bradly 1 pr. gr. stones for his grandmother 
& I pr at the burying ground for his grand father." [dd probably 
means delivered.] The two stones "for his grandfather" were those 
for Peter 2 Bradley, who lies interred in the Old Burying Ground, 
New London. Those for "his grandmother" were for Mary 2 
(Christophers) Bradley- Youngs-Lynde which are located in the 
Burying Ground in Southold Village.

Hon. Capt. Christopher 3 Christophers besides holding many 
other offices, succeeded to all of the offices held by his father, except 
the office of Judge of the Superior Court of Connecticut. Miss 
Caulkins, in her History of New London, says that he succeeded to 
all of his father's offices ; but the Colonial Records show that Jona- 
than Law succeeded Hon. Richard 2 Christophers as Judge of the 
Superior Court. 

"Groton, Conn., was made a district town in 1704. A second 
ecclesiastical society was formed in the North Parish of New London 
in 1722, and Baptist and Episcopal Societies in 1726. It was then no 
longer practicable to transact ecclesiastical business by towns, but 
by districts of townships, and a society was organized which took 
the name of the "First Ecclesiastical Society of New London," as 
belonging to the oldest church. This Society met Jan. 23, 1726-7, 
and chose the following officers: Christopher 3 Christophers, Modera- 
tor; Committee: Christopher 3 Christophers, Jonathan Prentis and 
John Hempstead; Clerk, John Richards. 

Christopher 3 Christophers made his will Jan. 30, 1728-9, and it 
was proved July 9, 1729; his wife Sarah was sole Executrix, men- 
tions sons Christopher (eldest) and John, and daughters Mary, 
Sara and Lucretia. 

Sarah (Prout) Christophers, widow of Christopher 3 Chris- 
tophers, made her will Jan. 26, 1744-5, and it was proved April 30, 
1745; her sons John and Christopher executors; mentions also 
daughters Sarah Prentis, Lucretia Palmes, and grandchildren Sarah, 
Esther and Christopher Hamlin, children of her daughter Mary 4 
(Christophers) Hamlin, deceased.

Burying Ground, New London, gravestone. 

In the Old Burying Ground, New London, there are two stones 
erected over the graves of Daniel Deshon and his wife Ruth 3 Chris- 
tophers, which stones are respectively inscribed as follows: "In 
memory of Mr. Daniel Deshon, who died November — , A.D., 
1781, in the 84th year of his age" — and — "In memory of Mrs. Ruth 
Deshon, wife of Mr. Daniel Deshon and daughter of Christopher 
Christophers, Esq., who died January 6th, A.D., 1775, in the 71st 
year of her age." This latter inscription a photograph of which 
may be seen in Some Incidents in the Early History of New London, 
by the late Hon. Augustus Brandgee, of that town, is for some un- 
accountable reason absolutely incorrect in so far as the statement as 
to the parentage of Ruth Christophers is. concerned. She was not 
the daughter of Hon. Christopher 1 Christophers beyond any ques- 
tion of doubt; and Hon. Christopher 2 Christophers in so far as we 
are informed, had no daughter Ruth Christophers, and Christopher 3 
Christophers (Richard, 2 Christopher 1 ) had no daughter Ruth. She 
was the daughter as above recorded of Richard 2 and Grace (Turner) 
Christophers. 

I cannot account for this error of inscription, unless it is due to 
the fact that the stone was erected some time after her death and 
was erroneously inscribed. It was probably intended to be inscribed 
granddaughter of Christopher 1 Christophers, Esq., which would be 
in accordance with the facts of the case, as she was a granddaughter 
of Christopher 1 Christophers of New London. 

Daniel Deshon, the husband of Ruth 3 Christophers, was a youth 
in the family of Capt. Rene Grignon, at the time of the decease of 
the latter at Norwich, Conn., in 1715, and he is mentioned in Capt. 
Grignon's will. Capt. Grignon was one of the company of protestant 
exiles, or Huguenots, that settled in the town of Oxford, Mass., 
about the year 1686. That settlement having been broken up by the 
Indians in 1696; the exiles were dispersed into various parts of New 
England. Capt. Grignon came to Norwich, first as a master of a 
trading vessel, but he afterwards settled in the town as a goldsmith 
and was granted the privileges of a regular inhabitant in 1710. His 
will was dated March 20 and proved April 12, 1715; and a clause of 
said will reads as follows : "I give to Daniel Deshon my goldsmiths 
tools and desire that he may learn the trade of some suitable person 
in Boston and have ten pounds when he comes of age." Daniel 
Deshon was accordingly placed with John Gray, a goldsmith in Bos-

with whom he removed to New London, where John Gray d. Jan. 
14, 1720.

m. June 19, 1726, at New London, by Eliphalet Adams to Capt. 
John Henry 2 Braddick (the Henry in his name is given on the 
authority of Miss Lucretia Smith, a genealogist of New Lon- 
don, Conn.), b. , 1700. about (see age at and date of death), 

at Southold. N. Y., probably; he lived at Southold, N. Y., and 
New London, Conn. ; he was a sea captain ; on June 6, 1725, 
he gave £25 towards building the first Protestant Episcopal 



Church in New London, and served as a vestryman and as 
warden of that church; d. Jan. 12, 1753, " m ve 53 rc * y ear °* h' s 
age,"' at New London, and was there buried in Old Burying 
Ground, gravestone; his will was dated Jan. 3, 1753, and was 
proved Feb. 1, 1753. He was a son of Capt. John 1 Braddick, 
"late of London, Eng., and later of Southold, N. Y." (whose 
will was dated Sept. 16, 1733, and proved Sept. 6, 1734, and 
he was killed by an Indian man on voyage home from "Madara," 
news reached New London and Southold, Feb. 15, 1733-4) and 

his wife Mary ? who was b. ; d. Dec. 2, 1739, at New 

London, "aged about 60;" she was of Southold, N. Y., but died 
in New London. 

Children: 7 (Braddick), 6 sons and 1 daughter, all b. in New 
London :

88 iii. Christopher, 4 b. Oct. 16, 1733; d. ; he was living 

Jan. 3, 1753, the date of his father's will. 

89 iv. Henry 1st, 4 b. March 13, 1735-6; d. Sept. 12, 1737, 

at New London. 

90 v. Lucretia, 4 b. , 1737-8; d. Feb. 4, 1743-4. aged 6 

or 7, at New London. 

91 vi. Son, 4 b. ; d. Dec. 4, 1742, at New London. 

92 vii. Henry 2nd, 4 b. , 1740; d. May 28, 1754, "in ye 

14th year of his age," at New London, and was there 
buried in Old Burying Ground, gravestone — this 
gravestone states that he was a son of John and 
Mary Braddick; but as his gravestone states that he 
was 14 years old at death, he must have been born 
(if the stone is properly recorded) in 1740, and 
hence was a son of John and Lucretia (Christophers) 
Braddick, in as much as Lucretia 3 (Christophers) 
Braddick, wife of John Henry 2 Braddick did not die 
until March 21, 1747-8, and he did not marry Mary 4 

(Christophers) ? (No. 54) until after that 

date. Hempstead's Diary, p. 626, states under date 
of May 28, 1754: "In ye forenoon Henry Braddick a 
lad about 12 or 13 years old died with the pleurisie." 
In Long Island Epitaphs, by Edward D. Harris (p. 39), an 
abstract of the will of John 1 Braddick may be seen. Will dated Sept. 
6, 1733; proved Sept. 6, 1734, and in it he mentions his wife Mary, 
his son John, partner Thomas Sandiforth, and his five youngest chil- 
dren, Alice (who married Abraham 4 Corey, No. 49 of descendants 
of Jeffery 1 Christophers), Elizabeth, David, Peter and Abigail. 

Capt. John Henry 2 Braddick, in 1732, was a member of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church of New London, then first incorporated, 



7 2 

which accounts for the fact that only one of his children's (No. 87) 
baptism is found recorded in the History of the First Church (Con- 
gregational) in New London, which baptism took place May 7, 1732. 

Capt. John Henry 2 Braddick m. (2) (after March 21, 1747- 

8, date of death of his first wife), at , to Mary 4 (Christophers) 

? (see No. 54 of the descendants of Hon. Christopher 1 Chris- 
tophers). Hempstead's Diary, p. 657, states under date of Oct. 10, 
1755 : "Nathaniel Coit's wife died last night [i. e. Oct. 9, 1755] and 
buried in ye eve. She was lately delivered of a child and had the 
fever and canker. She was his 2nd wife and he her 3rd husband. 
She was a daughter of Richard Christophers, deceased, the 2nd" 
[the 2nd here means Richard Christophers, the 2nd] . (Therefore if 
Hempstead's statement is correct, Mary 4 Christophers, 2nd wife of 
Capt. John Henry 2 Braddick was a widow at the time of her 2nd 
marriage to him), b. Dec. 17, 1 716; bap. Dec. 30, 1716, at New Lon- 
don ; d. Oct. 9, 1755, at New London, and was buried there Oct. 10, 
1755. She was a daughter of Hon. Capt. Richard 3 Christophers, by 
his wife Elizabeth Saltonstall, who lived at New London, Conn.

Capt. John Henry 2 Braddick, m. a third time, July 13, 1754, at New

(his first wife was Margaret Douglass (daughter of Capt. Richard 
Douglass) whom he m. Nov. 6, 1735, and who d. July 17, 1752), b. 
May 30, 171 1 ; bap. June 3, 171 1, at New London, he lived at New

The family legend runs that Mary 4 Christophers sailed from 
New London to New Haven, to attend the Yale commencement exer- 
cises, and that Jabez Hamlin, then a senior at Yale, saw her ap- 
proach the landing on ship board through a telescope, and then and 
there selected her, she being dressed in blue, as his partner for the 
commencement ball, his desire was accomplished and the friendship 
ripened into love and she became his wife until death claimed her 
in 1736.

Christopher 4 Christophers sympathized heartily with the revival 
measures which stirred the country soon after his graduation from 
Yale College; and in April, 1743, he was arrested and fined for 
participation in the famous burning of heretical books and vain 
apparel instigated by the fanatical James Davenport, of Yale Col- 
lege, Qass of 1732. He made his will Oct. 21, 1775, which was 
proved Feb. 13, 1776, and in it he mentions his four children, Sarah, 
Joseph, Elizabeth and Allan. He also mentions his loving wife 
Elizabeth, and makes her his executrix and his son Joseph his 
executor. The mention of his wife Elizabeth is unexplainable as 
she is recorded as having died Jan. 4, 1765 — over 10 years previous 
to date of Christopher* Christophers' will and her gravestone so 
records the date of her death. It can only be explained by the 
hypothesis that he married a second time to another Elizabeth, but 
the town records and family legend give no hint of this second mar- 
riage. It is possible also that the date of death of Elizabeth (Allen) 
Christophers has been incorrectly copied in Prentis' Graveyard In- 
scriptions of the Old Burying Ground, New London, p. 16. If 
the record really read died "J an 'y Y e x 4th A. D. 1785, aged 58 years, 
I month and 3 days" (and it is possible that such was the original 



86 

reading as in time worn lettering an 8 can easily be taken for a 6, and 
a 5 for a 3), if such was the original reading she would have been 
alive at her husband's death and would have been properly men- 
tioned in his will. 

Some authorities ascribe to Christopher* Christophers a son 
Peter, whom they say died Feb. 19, 1829, aged 31. They are in 
error.

Capt. John Prentis was a famous sea captain. In the expedition 
against Louisburg, Cape Breton, in 1744, the Connecticut troops 
numbering 500 were ordered to New London to embark, and the 
sloop of war Defence commanded by Capt. John Prentis was 
equipped and sailed as a convoy with the transports. His commis- 
sion as a Captain in the naval forces was dated March 19, 1744. 
The fleet sailed from New London, April 13, 1744, consisting of the 
colonial sloops Connecticut, Rhode Island, Defence and other 
schooners and brigs. The Defence also carried Col. Roger Wolcott, 
the commander-in-chief of the land forces and 100 men, and as a 
part of the naval fleet had a share in the capture of rich prizes. Two 
years later, in 1746, Captain Prentis, in company with Mr. James 
Bowdoin, of Boston, went to London, Eng., to urge the claims of 
the Provincial seamen to a share of the prize money which was with- 
held by Admiral Warren. The Admiralty allowed the claim and 
placed the British and Provincial seamen on the same footing. Cap- 
tain Prentis, while awaiting the decision of the Court, made an ex- 
cursion into Cornwall to visit Lord Edgecombe, of Mt. Edgecombe, 
being invited there to partake of the Christmas festivities. Whilst 
absent on this tour he took the smallpox, of which disease he died 
in London, Eng., Jan. (or June), — , 1746, aged 41 years. His 
estate in New London was appraised at £7.650, a large sum for 
those days. It was on this cruise that Whitfield blessedthe banner 
of the expedition and gave it the motto: "Nil desperandum, Christo 



8 9 

duce." He wished the expedition to be considered a crusade (Pren- 
tis Genealogy, 2nd edition).

and Plantations. His district included Connecticut, Fisher's Island, 
Gardiner's Island and the east end of Long Island. The office of 
Surveyor and Searcher was afterward separated from that of Col- 
lector and the appointment given to John Shackmaple, Jr., in 1728,

over to Boston, Mass., where he was a merchant. He removed to 
Shrewsbury, Mass., in 1757, where he bought a farm. In early life 
he commanded a packet-ship plying between London, Eng., and 
Boston, Mass. 

Thomas Allen lived in London, Eng., until 1734. He came 
over to Boston in 1734, and lived there until 1749; after that time 
until 1752, he was in the Island of Madeira for awhile and finally 
settled in New London, Conn. In 1749, he was spoken of as a 
shop-keeper associated with his father in Boston. While in Madeira 
he is said to have made a large fortune. When he returned to this 
country and settled in New London, he was a merchant near Ferry 
Wharf. In 1770, he commenced the first Marine List in New Lon- 



93 

don, and continued publishing it until his death. He was also en- 
gaged in commerce and owned sixteen sail vessels. He was voted 
into the Boston Marine Society, as a Marine Member, March 4, 
1760, and paid £4, io sh for his certificate of membership. In the 
Annals of St. James (P. E.) Church, New London, by Rev. Robert 
A. Hallam, D.D., he is spoken of as a man of substance and extensive 
business, and for a long time a foremost man in the Episcopal 
Church, of which Church he was a Warden for 10 years. Hemp- 
stead's Diary, p. 634, under date of Saturday, July 27, 1734, states: 
"An infant still born, of the body of the widow Eliza Sh^ckmapie, 
alias (it is hoped) the wife of Thomas Allin. a bankrupt and gone 
off to the West Indies, was buried in ye evening." Under date of 
Aug. 23, 1758, he states: "I was most of the day laying out Beach 
for Thomas Allin and John Shackmaple's heirs, with Justice Rich- 
ards, Justice Coit and Deacon Fosdyck." 

Caulkin's History of New London, pp. 578-9, states: "Allen's 
Marine List was esteemed a valuable appendage to Greene's news- 
paper. He enlivened the dull record of entries and clearances with 
maxims, witticisms and sudden insertions of extraneous matter 
which were often grotesque and amusing. The list commenced in 
1770. During the Revolutionary War, he [Thomas Allen] kept a 
public house on Main Street, which was reopened as the City Coffee 
House, and the marine list renewed Jan. 1, 1785. This house was 
regarded as the center of good living and convivial brotherhood. 
Here was to be heard the latest news, the freshest anecdote, the 
keenest repartee : here was served up the earliest and best game of 
the season, the January salmon, the eighteen pound black fish, trout, 
woodcock and wild duck, in advance of every other table. It was 
much then in vogue for gentlemen of the town to dine together in 
clubs. The following advertisement from Greene's Gazette gives 
notice of the re-opening of the City Coffee House: 'City Coffee 
House reopened by Thomas Allen, next door to Captain Joseph 
Packwood's, where can be had drink for the thirsty, food for the 
hungry, lodging for the weary, good stabling for horses. Said Allen 
has also in supply of choice Madeira Lisbon and Port wines for 
the benefit of the sick and weakly, and good horses to let to mer- 
ciful riders.' "

54. Mary 4 Christophers (Hon. Capt. Richard, 3 Hon. Richard, 2 
Hon. Christopher 1 ), b. Dec. 17, 1716; bap. Dec. 30, 1716, at 
New London, Conn.; d. Oct. 9 (or 10), 1755, at New London, 
and was there buried in Old Burying Ground, gravestone. Her 
gravestone is recorded in Prentis' Graveyard Inscriptions of 
New London, as being thus inscribed, p. 36: "In memory of 
Mrs. Mary Coit, wife of Capt. Nathaniel Coit, who departed 
this life October ye 10th IJ35, in ye 30th year of her age." 
The year date of her death should be 7755, as it is distinctly 
recorded in Hempstead's Diary, p. 657, and the day of the 
month was either Oct. 9th (or 10th), as under date of Oct. 
10th, 1755, Hempstead in his diary states that she died last 
night. The inscription as recorded and printed by Prentis is 
again in error, as she was, at the time of her death, in her 40th 
year, and not in her 2,0th year as printed. Chapman's Coit 
Genealogy, p. 39, states : "The date of her death is not known." 
I presume that the inaccuracy of the tombstone inscription gave 
rise to Chapman's doubt on the subject. Nevertheless, Hemp- 
stead distinctly records it as above Oct. 9 (or 10), 1755. 
The Chronicles of a Connecticut Farm, on chart, between pp. 
84-5, states that Mary 4 Christophers, No. 54, m. only twice, — first 
to Captain John Braddick and secondly to Nathaniel Coit. The 
Coit Genealogy mentions her only as the widow of Captain John 
Braddick. In disagreement with this, Hempstead's Diary, p. 657, 
under date of Oct. 10, 1755, states: "Nathaniel Coit's wife' died last 
night, and buried in ye eve. She was lately delivered of a child and 
had fever and canker. She was his second wife and he her third 
husband. She was a daughter of Richard Christophers, deceased, 
the 2nd [i. e., the second of that name]." 

If Hempstead is correct in his above quoted statement that 
Nathaniel Coit was the third husband of Mary 4 Christophers, No. 
54, the question arises as to who were her first and second husbands. 
We know that John Braddick was her husband previous to her 
marriage to Nathaniel Coit, and that she was the second wife of 
the said John Braddick, whom she married some time after the death 
of his first wife who was Lucretia 3 Christophers, No. 25, who died 
March 21, 1747-8; therefore at the time of her marriage to John 
Braddick she was at least 31 years old (see her date of birth) which 
a g e (3 1 ) was a late one in those days for a first marriage. These 
facts renders in a measure probable that she (No. 54) may have 
married previous to her marriage to John Braddick. If so, to 
whom? 



95 

Miss Emma C. Brewster Jones, the author of the Brewster 
Genealogy, in her manuscript records, of the descendants of Elder 
William Brewster in the female line ( see manuscript collections of 
the N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical Society), states in Book 
No. 7 of these manuscripts that Mary 4 Christophers, No. 54, prob- 
ably married Jeremiah Miller. 

From the History of the First Church, New London, from 
Hempstead's Diary and from Hedge's History of Easthampton, 
L. I., N. Y., we gather than there were in New London from 171 1 
to 1761, three of the name of Jeremiah Miller, viz.: 

1. Jeremiah 4 Miller (son of Jeremiah 3 and Mary (Mulford) Mil- 
ler, of Easthampton, N. Y.), b. , 1690; d. March 15, 1756, 

aged 66; m. March 2, 1717-18 (intention published New Lon- 
don, Feb. 9, 1 71 7- 18), at New London, to Mary Saltonstall 
(dau. of the Rev. Gov. Gurdon Saltonstall, of New London), 
who was b. Feb. 15, 1691-2, at New London, and who d. Feb. 
17, 1749, at New London. This Jeremiah 4 Miller graduated 
1709 from Yale College and was a physician and school teacher 
at New London, where he settled in 171 1. He m. 2nd, Anne 
(Dudley) Winthrop (daughter of Joseph and Rebecca (Tying) 
Dudley, of Roxbury, Mass., and widow of Major John Win- 
throp, who d. in Sydenham, Eng., Aug. 1, 1747.) She was 
b. Aug. 27 and bap. Aug. 31, 1684; m. John Winthrop, Dec. 16, 
1707. He had a son by his first marriage. 

2. Jeremiah 5 Miller, b. ; bap. New London, Aug. 23, 1719. 

He was the Naval Officer of New London, and m. May 16, 
1744, at New London, to Margaret Winthrop, bap. Jan. 16, 
1718; d. , 1803 (dau. of John and Anne (Dudley) Win- 
throp, of New London). They had a son. 

3. Jeremiah 6 Miller, b. ; bap. New London, May 21, 1749. 

On consideration of the above array of facts it is obvious that 
the last Jeremiah 6 Miller, bap. May 21, 1749, could not have been 
the first husband of Mary 4 Christophers, No. 54, for the reason that 
he was 33 years younger than she was and also that she married 
John Braddick as his second wife after March 21, 1747-8, and died 
Oct. 9 (or 10), 1755, when this Jeremiah 6 Miller was only 6 years 
old. 

Jeremiah 8 Miller, bap. New London, Aug. 23, 1719; d. ? 

and by his wife Margaret Winthrop, who d. in 1803, had the fol- 
lowing children as recorded in the History of the First Church, New 
London, and in Hempstead's Diary, the entries reading as follows, 
viz.: 

1. John Still, bap. Aug. 2, 1746, son of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 

2. Mary, bap. Nov. 1, 1747, dau. of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 

3. Jeremiah, bap. May 21, 1749, son of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 

4. Margareta, bap. June 10, 1750, dau. of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 

5. Ann, bap, Aug. 16, 1752, dau. of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 



96 

6. Katharine, bap. April 3, 1757, dau. of Jeremiah Miller, Jr. 

7. Elizabeth, bap. Feb. 26, 1758, dau. of Jeremiah and Margaretta 
Miller. 

8. Gurdon Jason, bap. April 3, 1763, son of Jeremiah and Mar- 
garetta Miller. 

From the above record of children we see that Jeremiah 5 Mil- 
ler's wife Margaret (Winthrop) Miller was alive up to 1803 and 
bore him children as late as 1763 ; hence Mary* Christophers, No. 54, 
could not have been the wife of this Jeremiah 5 Miller. 

Jeremiah 4 Miller, the progenitor of the New London Millers, m. 
(1) Mary Saltonstall, who d. Feb. 17, 1749, and who was the mother 
of all of his children. He m. (2) Anne (Dudley) Winthrop, widow 
of John Winthrop (son of Wait Still Winthrop, of Boston), who d. 
Aug. 1, 1747, in Sydenham, England. This John Winthrop was the 
father of Margaret Winthrop, who m. Jeremiah 5 Miller. Jeremiah 4 
Miller d. March 15, 1756; hence he m. Anne (Dudley) Winthrop as 
his second wife between the years 1749 and 1756, and this, his sec- 
ond wife and widow survived him and died in 1803. Hence it is 
impossible for this Jeremiah 4 Miller to have been the first husband 
of Mary 4 Christophers, No. 54. 

These facts seem to disprove most positively Miss E. C. Brewster 
Jones' suggestion of her probable marriage to a Jeremiah Miller. 

If she did marry previous to her marriage to John Braddick, as 
Hempstead states (p. 657), I have not been able to discover any 
record of such marriage, nor have I unearthed any clue as to who 
her first husband was, and I construct the record of her marriages 
to be as follows : 

Mary 4 Christophers m. (1) — , at , to ? (whose sur- 
name, baptismal name and parentage have not as yet been de- 
termined), b. , at ; d. (if he ever existed in the flesh 

before her marriage to John Braddick, which took place subse- 
quent to March 21, 1747-8, the date of death of John Braddick's 
first wife and prior to Jan. 12, 1752-3, the date of John Braddick's 
death, at . 

Children: ? ( ?) None that we have any record of. 

Mary 4 (Christophers) , widow of ? m. (2) (after 

March 21, 1747-8), at , to Captain John Braddick (as his 2nd 

wife, whose first wife was Lucretia 3 Christophers, No. 25, who d. 
March 21, 1747-8), b. , 1700, about, at Southold, N. Y. (prob- 
ably) ; he was a sea captain and lived at Southold, N. Y., and later 
at New London. Conn., where he was a vestryman and warden of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church; he d. Jan. 12. 1752-3, of galloping 
consumption, at New London, and was there buried, gravestone. 

Children: (Braddick). None that are known of.

May 29, 1788, and on June 22 of that same year 
was received into the Moravian Church. 
The Chronicles of a Connecticut Farm, p. 96, states : "On 
March 7, 1755, John Christophers of New London, sold his house, 
shop, barn and work house to Captain George Mumford of Fisher's 
Island" — James Mumford (his son) probably lived on Fisher's 
Island until about this date and then removed to New London. All 
of James Mumford's children, except the last one, No. 204, were 
probablv born on Fisher's Island. Both George 5 and Caleb 5 Mum- 
ford, Nos. 201 and 203, probably died, not married, or at least left 
no issue; because their brother Robinson 5 Mumford, No. 199, un- 
der date of Aug. 15, 1801 in a letter acknowledging news of the 
death of his brother Caleb 5 Mumford, at Salem, states that his aged 
mother was then still alive, but that he and his son George were the 
last of the line of Captain George Mumford. 

The exact date of marriage of James Mumford to Sarah 4 
Christophers is not as yet determined ; but it took place prior to 
July 7, 1742, for on that date James Mumford joins with his wife 
Sarah Mumford in a deed of land to Roderick Mackowsky of New 
London (see Book 13 (1742-3) New London Records). 

James Mumford, of New London, made his will Aug. 6, 1773, 
and it was proved Sept. 4, 1773, before Gurdon Saltonstall, Judge 
of Probate; the will was witnessed by Jeremiah Miller, Roswell 



IOO 

Saltonstall and Allen Christophers, and will was sworn to before 
Jeremiah Miller, Justice of the Peace. The will makes no specific 
bequests, but directs division of the residuary estate in accordance 
with the laws of the Colony. Executors were his wife Sarah, son 
Robinson, now residing in the island of Jamaica, and his son-in- 
law, Joseph Christophers, of New London.

1770, in the 58th year of her age, at New London and was

incorrect. She was a dau. of Captain John and Mary ( )

stead of Groton, Conn. 

The Coit Genealogy, p. 48, states that Abigail Braddick was the 
dau. of Captain Jonathan Braddick by his wife Mary, in which 
statement the work is in error. She was the dau. of John and 

Mary ( ) Braddick, and is mentioned in the will of the said 

John Braddick, under date of Sept. 6, 1733. Hempstead in his 
diary, p. 449, in speaking of the funeral of Richard 4 Coit on Oct. 
4, 1745, says: "I was at ye funeral of Richard Coit: 16 pair of 
mourners followed the corps. Mingo and Bela [slaves] and their 
wives brought up the rear." 

Abigail (Braddick)/ Coit, widow of Richard 4 Coit, m. (2) June 
7, 1767, at New London to James Chapman (as his 2nd wife, whose 
first wife was Hannah Acourt, whom he m. Nov. 16, 1760, at New

d. , dau. of Jonathan Turner). 

Children: (Harris) none that are known of. 

Ruth 5 (Deshon) Harris, widow of David Har- 
ris, m. (2) March 3, 1789, at New London, to 

Nicholas Lazelle (Loysel or Loiselles), b. , at 

; d. (will dated Oct. 23, 1806, no date of 

probate), at . His parentage is as yet not de- 
termined by me. He was a loyal Frenchman, an 
adherent of the Crown when Louis XVI was be- 
headed on Jan. 21, 1793; when Lazelle heard the 
news he painted his house black, and as late as 1912 
a part of this house (which was still standing) re- 
tained evidence of this black paint. Nicholas Laz- 
elle made his will Oct. 23, 1806, and in it he men- 
tions his wife Ruth, also mentions Sarah Burgis, 
Jr., Ruth Burgis and George Thomas Burgis, chil- 
dren of Thomas and Sarah 5 (Deshon) Burgis, of 
Guilford, Conn., his wife Ruth Lazelle was made 
Executrix. 

Children: (Lazelle) none that are known of and 
none are mentioned in the will of either Ruth 5 
(Deshon) Harris-Lazelle, nor in that of her hus- 
band, Nicholas Lazelle. 

After the massacre in St. Domingo, several 
families from there settled in Guilford, Conn. 



109 

Among them was Nicholas Lazelle ; he was late of 
the Island of Guadaloupe, West Indies, as stated 
in his will. Ruth (Deshon) Harris-Lazelle made 
her will May 4, 1824, and it was probated May 24, 
1824. In it she mentions Noah Fowler, Jr., of 
Guilford and his wife Ruth; her sister Sarah 5 
(Deshon) Burgis, wife of Thomas Burgis. (See 
No. 228). 
224 iv. Lucretia, b. June 10, 1761 ; d. Sept. 17, 1846, at 
Norwich, Conn.; m. Feb. 19, 1783, at Norwich, 
Conn., to Simeon Thomas, of Norwich, b. Dec. 13, 
1753, at Norwich; d. July 2, 1834, at Norwich. He 

was a son of Ebenezer Thomas (b. ; d. Oct. 

16, 1774; m. Sept. 5, 1748) and his wife Deborah 

Hyde (b. ; d. Oct. 5, 1803), of Norwich, 

Conn. 

Children: 6 (Thomas), 1 son and 5 daughters, all 

b. at Norwich. 

i. Frances, 6 b. April 22, 1784; d. , at Col- 
chester, Conn.; m. Elisha Leffingwell (see No. 
391), Jan. 10, 1808, at Norwich, Conn.; 9 
children, 
ii. Lucretia, 6 b. Oct. 17, 1785; d. , at Col- 
chester, Conn. ; not m. 
iii. Elizabeth, 6 b. April 26, 1788; d. at Hart- 
ford, Conn.; not m. 

iv. Edward, 6 b. April 3, 1793 ; d. , at Augusta, 

Ga. ; m. Sarah J. Hutchinson ; 8 children, 
v. Mary Ann, 6 b. March 1 (or 18), 1797; d. 
March 1, 1883, at Wilton, Conn.; m. Oct. 4, 
1821, to James Nevins Hyde. 

vi. Harriet Deshon, 6 b. Aug. 19, 1800; d. , 

at Norwich, Conn.; not m. 

The Descendants of James Rogers of New 
London, p. 133, states that Lucretia 6 (Deshon) 
Thomas m. (2) Nicholas Loyal, but gives no fur- 
ther particulars relative to this marriage. This 
same authority states that her first husband was 
Simeon Harris, of Norwich, Conn. This latter 
statement is we know, incorrect, as her first hus- 
band was Simeon Thomas (not Harris). I am in- 
clined to the belief that the statement as to her sec- 
ond husband is also an error, as I think the author 
of James Rogers and his Descendants, got Ruth 5 
Deshon (No. 223) and her sister Lucretia 5 Deshon 
(No. 224) confused, as regards their marriages. 
We know (see record No. 223) that Ruth 5 Deshon 
m. (1) David Harris and m. (2) Nicholas Lazelle 



no 



and we know that Lucretia 5 Deshon (No. 224) m. 
Simeon Harris. The Nicholas Loyal mentioned as 
the second husband of No. 224, is we think, a con- 
fusion of names with that of Nicholas Lazelle who 
m. No. 223. 

Nicholas Lazelle the second husband of Ruth 
(Deshon) Harris, made his will dated Oct. 23, 
1806, but we have no record of its date of probate 
(see Guilford, Conn., probate records Vol. 17, p. 
76). He may possibly have long outlived his wife 
and may possibly be the Nicholas Loyal said to 
have been the second husband of Lucretia 5 
(Deshon) Thomas, but we do not think that such 
was the case. The will of Mrs. Ruth Lazelle (No. 
223) was dated May 4, 1824, and proved May 24, 
1824, and in it she makes no mention of her hus- 
band, Nicholas Lazelle, which she undoubtedly 
would have done if he had been living at that date. 
Simeon Thomas did not die until July 2, 1834, and 
if Lucretia 5 (Deshon) Thomas (No. 224) married 
a second time it must have been after July 2, 1834; 
and if to Nicholas Loyal (meaning undoubtedly 
Nicholas Lazelle) it was to a man who made his will 
in 1806 and who was not mentioned in the will of 
his wife (or rather most likely his widow) which 
was dated May 4, 1824, so I conclude that Lucretia 5 
(Deshon) Thomas did not marry a second time. 

225 v. Lydia, 5 b. ; d. ; m. Sept. 10, 1789, at New 

London, to James Cizane (or Cezanne), b. , at 

, France; he came to Guilford, Conn., from 

the Island of Guadaloupe ; he was a merchant ; d. 
June 21, 1812, drowned at sea. His parentage is 
as yet not determined. The New London Vital 
Records state: "James Cezane a native of Mar- 
seilles in France married Lydia Deshon." James 
Cezanne, Nicholas Loysell and Thomas Burgis were 
respectively the 5th, 6th and 22nd signers of the 
membership roll of Christ Church (Episcopal) in 
Guilford, Conn., on Jan. 1, 1804. Dr. Alvan Tal- 
cott's manuscript record of Guilford, Conn. Fami- 
lies (pages not numbered) states: "James Cezanne 
of Guadaloupe, etc., drowned at sea, June 21, 
1812." 

Children: 3 (Cezanne), 2 sons and 1 daughter, first 
b. New London, others in Guilford, Conn. 

i. Lydia, 6 b. May 21, 1791 ; d. . Life and 

Letters of Fits Greene Halleck, p. 65, states: 
"About 1808 one of Halleck's favorites was 



a young girl Lydia Cezanne the daughter of a 
French merchant then residing in Guilford, 
Conn." Under date of February 2, 1813, 
Halleck writes : "Please present my compli- 
ments to Lydia Cezanne, if she still is in Guil- 
ford" and : "I am sorry that Lydia is so much 
occupied as to prevent her scribbling me a 
line or two."

zelle (see record No. 223) ; m. Feb. 14, 1793, at 
Guilford, Conn., by Mr. John Elliot, to Thomas 
Burgis, b. Oct. 6, 1770, at Guilford; d. May 25, 
1861, at Guilford. He was a son of Thomas Bur- 
gis (b. Feb. 24, 1738; d. Jan. 14, 1799; m. Aug. 9, 
1769) and his wife Olive Dudley (b. June 3, 1746;

Record of Births, Marriages and Deaths, 
Guilford, Conn., Vol. II, p. 226, gives : 



"Thomas Burgis of Guilford, Conn., and 
Sarah Deshon of New London were joined 
in marriage by Mr. John Elliott, Minister, 
February 14, 1793." 

Alderbrook Cemetery Inscriptions, Guil- 
ford, Conn., gives the following: "Noah 
Fowler died June 10, 1850, aged 55 years," — 
"Ruth (Burgis) Fowler, died July II, 
1878, aged 84," — Thomas Burgis died May 
25, 1861, aged 90 years, 8 months," — Sarah 
(Deshon) Burgis, wife of Thomas Burgis, 
died Jan. 25, 1852, aged 80," — "Lydia Maria, 
daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Deshon) 
Burgis died June 16, 1808, aged 11 months, 13 
days." 

Dr. Talcott's manuscript record of Guil- 
ford Families is the authority for the date of 
marriage of Ruth 8 Burgis and Noah Fowler, 
and for the marriage and death of Sarah 8 
(Burgis) Hubbard.

Miss E. C. Brewster Jones' notes on the de- 
cendants in the female line of Jonathan Brewster, 
in Book No. 3, Part "A" (N. Y. G. & Biog. So- 
ciety), gives the record of a John Deshon, who for 
a time lived in North Carolina, and removed thence 
to Kentucky and thence to French Lick Springs, 
Ind. ; he m. in French Lick, Ind.. Miss Nannie 

? He d. in Indianapolis. Ind.. and on May 5, 

1901, his widow, Mrs. Nannie Deshon, was living 
at No. 519 East 4th Street, New Albany, Ind. They 
had a daughter, Mrs. Julia (Deshon) Miller, who 
lived on Indiana Avenue, Kankakee, 111. Miss E. 
C. Brewster Jones was under the impression that 
this John Deshon of French Lick Springs, Ind.,

was a son of John 5 Deshon (Henry, 4 Daniel, 3 Dan-

have been a son of the above John Deshon, No.

Joseph Chew and Samuel Chew (sons of Thomas and Martha 
(Tayler) Chew, of Virginia, came to New London before 1750. 
Joseph Chew was Surveyor of the Port in New London in 1761 ; he 
espoused the Loyalist side prior to and at the time of the Revolu- 
tion, while Samuel Chew adhered to the Colonists. That Joseph 
Chew was a turbulent character is shown from the following extracts 
from Hempstead's Diary, viz. : p. 599 : "Tuesday, November 28, 
1752, Joseph Chew assaulted Captain Richard Durfey on the high- 
way and wounded him with a bone on the head, and bruised his 
head and tore his shirt, etc.;" p. 658: "Saturday, October 25, 1755, 
last night, about nine o'clock Joseph Chew and John Miller and 
Lechmere and others made a very great rout and tumult, firing 
guns and swearing and cursing and threatening to kill Stephen Pot- 
ter and others, and was like to have killed Potter." On account of 
his loyalty to the Royal Cause he was requested to leave New Lon- 
don. This was a period of great disturbance between the Crown and 
the Colonists on account of taxation, and as Joseph Chew was con- 
nected with the New London Customs House, it was more than 
likelv that his outbreaks were due to his political connections. 

From Sabine's Loyalists, Vol. II, p. 495, we extract the fol- 
lowing. : "Joseph Chew of New London, Conn., was a Commissary 
in the Royal Service, and in 1777 was taken prisoner by a party of 
Whigs at Sag Harbor," — "Joseph Chew, a magistrate of Tryon 
(now Montgomery) County, N. Y., signed the declaration of Loyalty 
in 1775. In 1792 he was in Canada, an official under Sir John John- 
son and in correspondence with Brant in relation to pending difficul- 
ties with the L T nited States." According to the late Miss Alice Chew. 



"9 

of New London (a great-grand-daughter of Samuel Chew, brother 
of Joseph Chew;, Joseph Chew went to Canada to live; which leads 
one to conclude that the above extracts from Sabine refer to Joseph 
Chew, of New London.

The last four children are not given in the Coil Genealogy nor in 
the Prentis Genealogy, but are given in Miss Emma C. Brewster 
Jones' Brewster Notes in the N. Y. Gen. & Bio. Soc. Library. I think 
Miss Jones is in error in giving these children to William Coit. I think 
that they are confused with the four children of the same baptismal

Beebe, widow, deeds to James Lampheer all her right in home-lot in 
New London that descended to her from her brother John Mayhew. 
P. 26: In view of more recent information record No. 20 should 
read as follows: 

20. Sarah 4 Mayhew (John 3 Mayhew, Joanna 2 Christophers, 

Jeffery 1 ), b. ; bapt. Nov. 22, 1713, at New London, Ct. ; d. 

, at ; m. Oct. 2, 1740, at New London, Capt. James 3 Lam- 
pheer (probably son of Theodosius 2 (George 1 ) and Rachel (Covey) 
Lampheer of Westerly, R. I.), b. Nov. 22, 1710 at Westerly, R. I. 

(probably) ; d. , at . Capt. James 3 Lampheer was one of 

the volunteers from Connecticut serving at the siege and fall of 



i6i 

Louisburg, Nova Scotia in 1745. Family tradition of doubtful 
authority gives it that his father came from Nova Scotia to New 
London in 1730; but it seems more likely that he came to New Lon- 
don from Westerly, R. I. The tradition exists in the family that 
the emigrant ancestor was a Huguenot, which may be so. 
Children: 5 (Lampheer), 2 sons and 3 daus., all b. in New London: 

56. i. Sarah, 5 bapt. July 19, 1741, at New London. 

57. ii. Mary, 5 1st, bapt. June 12, 1743, at New London; d. 

, young. 

58. iii. Mary, 5 2nd, bapt. Jan. 19, 1745-6, at New London; d. 

Aug. 25, 1753, aged 8 years, and was bur. Aug. 26, 1753 
at New London. 

+59- i y - James, 5 b. , 1747; d. March 6, 1820; m. Grace 5 

Deshon (Henry 4 Deshon, Ruth 3 Christophers, Richard 2 
Christophers, Christopher 1 Christophers), see Record No. 
222 of the descendants of Christopher 1 Christophers, 
which forms a part of this record. Neither the birth nor 
baptism of this James 5 Lampheer is to be found in the 
New London records, but it is a firmly fixed belief in 
the Lampheer family record that he was a son of Capt. 
James and Sarah (Mayhew) Lampheer; and moreover 
there is a gap of 6 years between the record of the child 
Mary 5 Lampheer, bapt. Jan. 19, 1745-6, and the child 
Peter 5 Lampheer, bapt. Xan. 19, 1751-2, which gives some 
ground to the belief that another child may have been 
born in between them in 1747. We know that a James 
Lampheer married Grace 5 Deshon May 22, 1776, at New 
London and, based entirely upon the strength of family 
tradition, we have recorded him as the child of James 
and Sarah (Mayhew) Lampheer. 
60. v. Peter, 5 bapt. Jan. 19, 1751-2; d. Aug. 25, 1753, aged 
\y 2 yrs. and was bur. Aug. 26, 1753. 
In Hempstead's Diary, p. 280, under date of Oct. 20, 1734 
(Sunday) we find: 

" Lampheer and Mary Chappel was published." In Bailey's 

Early Connecticut Marriages, Book II, p. 17, this marriage is re- 
corded as follows : "Lemuel Lanthur and Mary Chappel were mar- 
ried at New London, Dec. 26, 1734." I record these entries as by 
some it has been thought that Capt. James Lampheer may have mar- 
ried Mary Chappel as his first wife, before he married Sarah 4 May- 
hew. The above entry in Bailey of the name Lemuel seems to 
dispose of this belief. 
P. 40, 9th line from top of page: 

Insert (2) before John Wiggin, Jr. 
P. 59: Referring to Record No. 11 of Christopher 3 Bradley: — 

It appears that Mary 2 (Christophers) Bradley- Youngs-Lynde, 
the mother of Christopher 3 Bradley, made her will Aug. 7, 1721, 
which will was proved at the New London Probate Court, Aug. 6, 
1724. The will shows that there was a pre-nuptial agreement ex- 
isting between Nathaniel Lynde and Mary (Christophers) Bradley- 



162 

Youngs the widow of Col. Thomas Youngs (her second husband) 
of Southold, by which it was arranged that she should have the right 
to dispose of such estate as she was possessed of prior to her mar- 
riage to Nathaniel Lynde. In this will she makes mention of the 
following individuals : — 

Loving brother Richard Christophers (No. 4 of this record). 

Loving cousin Christopher Christophers (No. 12 of this record). 

Loving cousin Richard Christophers (No. 13 of this record). 

Loving cousin Mary Christophers, dau. of Cousin Christopher 
Christophers (No. 45 of this record). 

Loving cousin Mary Christophers, dau. of Cousin Richard 
Christophers (No. 54 of this record). 

Loving cousin Mary Young, wife of Joshua Young, and her dau. 
Mary (No. 30 of the descendants of Jeffery 1 Christophers). 

Daughters of brother Richard Christophers (Nos. 17, 19, 21, 
23, 24, 25, 26, of this record). 

Two grandsons, Peter Bradley and Jonathan Bradley (No. 42 of 
this Record). 

Cousin Christopher Christophers, Executor. 

From this will we therefore see that on Aug. 7, 1721, the testa- 
trix had a grandson Peter* Bradley as well as a grandson Jonathan* 
Bradley, and hence the number of children of Christopher 3 Bradley 
should be increased by one son, viz : — 

42a. Peter,* b. (prior to Aug. 7, 1721) ; d. (certainly 

alive Aug. 7, 1721, and possibly Aug. 6, 1724) ; he is men- 
tioned in the will of his grandmother Mary (Christophers) 
Bradley- Youngs-Lynde, dated Aug. 7, 1721, and proved 
Aug. 6, 1724. His subsequent history is not known. 

The fact that James* Bradley is not mentioned in this will of his 
grandmother may be because his death possibly occurred on Feb. 6, 
1723-4 (before the will was probated), and not as given on page 
16, as Feb. 6, 1724-5. Or it may have been because he was a con- 
firmed invalid and not expected to live when the will was made 
in 1721. 

P. 64, 25th line:— 
Lyme, N. Y., should read Lyme, Conn. 

P. 90, last line of the page, with reference to Sarah ? wife of 

John Shackmaple, Senior: — 

John Shackmaple, Senior, of New London, m. Sarah Townley, 
daughter of Richard Townley, by his wife Elizabeth (Smith) Law- 
rence-Carteret-Townley, of Elizabethtown, N. J. (See Townley 
Chart in pocket of back cover of the work, The Lawrence, Chase, 
Townley Estate, The Mystery Solved, by Frank Alden Hill). The 
wife of Richard Townley was the daughter of Richard (called 
"Bull") Smith, the patentee of Smithtown, Long Island, N. Y., by 
his wife Sarah Folger Smith. Richard Smith died March 2, 1691-2. 
He signed his will March 5, 1691, and it was proved May 2, 1693. 
He must have drawn this will up some 11 years prior to officially 
signing it, as in it he speaks of his daughter Lawrence (one time 
wife of Captain William Lawrence, who died in 1680). Elizabeth 



1 6 3 

Smith was b. , in Smithtown, N. Y., probably; d. (she 

made her will March 8, 1711-12, and it was proved July 23, 1712) ; 

she is buried in Elizabethtown, N. J. Elizabeth Smith m. (1) ? 

(intention published and license granted March 4, 1664) to Cap- 
tain William Lawrence of Flushing, Long Island, N. Y., b. ; 

d. , 1680 (prior to March 30, 1681). She m. (2) on or shortly 

after March 30, 1681 (on which date she signed a pre-nuptial agree- 
ment with her second husband), to Capt. Sir Philip Carteret who 

was the first Governor of the Province of New Jersey, b. , at 

; d. (will signed Dec. 10, 1682). She m. (3) ? 

(probably shortly after Dec. 10, 1682 when Capt. Sir Philip Car- 
teret made his will) to Richard Townley, b. , in , England ; 

d. , 1707-8, intestate at ? and was buried in Elizabethtown, 

N. J., by whom she had two sons and 1 daughter, Sarah Townley, 
who m. John Shackmaple of New London. 

Richard Townley came to America in the suite of Lord Howard, 
Baron of Effingham, who succeeded Culpepper as Royal Governor of 
Virginia from 1684 to 1688. He settled in Elizabethtown, N. J., 
where he became a Colonel of Militia. He was one of the Privy 
Council of Deputy Governor Lord Neil Campbell in 1686. He 
was a cousin of Jeremiah Townley of London, who was the father 
of Margaret Frances Townley who m. Richard Chase and settled 
in Maryland. For a full recording of the pedigree of Richard 
Townley into the dim past, see the chart of Frank Alden Hill's 
book above referred to. He was the 8th son of Nicholas and Joanna 
(White) Townley of England. 

P. 91, under head of record 191 we gather as follows: — 

The Town Records of New London state: "Robert Colfax, 
son of Mr. George Colfax and Lucy his wife, and Sarah Wilson, 
daughter of Capt. Thomas Wilson and Sarah his wife, were mar- 
ried in 1781." Hence the record of the children of John Shack- 
maple, Jr., by his wife Elizabeth 4 Christophers should be corrected 
to read as follows : — 

Children: 5 (Shackmaple), 2 sons and 3 daus., all' b. in New 
London : — 

190. i. Sarah, 5 b. Wednesday, July 4, 1733 ; m. Capt. Thomas
